“A partnership among parents, children and faculty fosters each child's self-esteem, independence, responsibility and sense of belonging to a larger, diverse community...”

Welcome to the website for The Londonderry School — a wonderful alternative educational opportunity for more than 200 preschool through eighth-grade students from the greater Harrisburg area. We've been an innovator in education since 1971 when a group of parents initiated the school as an alternative to traditional education. For more than forty years, the school has thrived as the result of the unique partnership among faculty and parents that has created a learning enviroment to encourage students to follow their curiosity, creating a pathway for lifelong achievement.

“A school where ordinary kids do extraordinary things!”

The Londonderry elementary program is licensed by the Pennsylvania State Board of Private Academic Schools, and the preschool and kindergarten program is the longest National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accredited early childhood program in central Pennsylvania. In addition, our before and after school care program has received the highest rating available from the Pennsylvania Department of Welfare Keystone STARS.
