OMPH School was established in 1957 under the direction of the Bernardine Sisters of the Third Order of Francis,
Today, our school is fully staffed by a dedicated lay faculty. Our curriculum is established and directed by the
Diocese of Harrisburg. OMPH School is accredited by the Middle States Commissions on Elementary and
Secondary. Our Mother of Perpetual Help School is open to all students regardless of race, religion or national origin.
We are so blessed to have such a wonderful Catholic school in our community. The school challenges the children academically to succeed and the teachers and other faculty make us feel like we are all family. Being a graduate of OMPH myself, there was no doubt in my mind that OMPH would be the best choice for our children.
