About Us

  1. Thank you for visiting our Web site. Cumberland Valley students have long excelled in academics, the arts, and athletics - the three pillars of a high-quality education. Our vision of “Soaring to Greatness, Committed to Excellence” clearly defines who we are, what we do, and our journey together. CV students enjoy the support of an incredibly dedicated faculty and staff who prepare them as lifelong learners in the 21st Century. Long committed to excellence, CV students currently rank academically as the premier district in Central Pennsylvania and in the top 5 percent in the state. More than 85 percent of our graduates proceed on to post-secondary education, with many enrolling each year in the nation’s top colleges and universities. 

    Our second pillar of this district is its extensive visual and performing arts education program. Students participate in the band and orchestra from elementary through high school, and they perform in our modern, awe-inspiring Performing Arts Center. For many years, the NAMM Foundation has identified CV as among the "Best Communities for Music Education in America." Our art curriculum includes courses offered at every grade level. Beginning in 2008-09, CV High School students were able to enroll in Advanced Placement Art Studio courses in 2-Dimensional Design, 3-Dimensional Design, or Drawing Studio. Mentoring teachers and an AP advisory class guided students in the process of meeting AP portfolio requirements.

    Lastly, CV fields 26 varsity athletic teams - 13 boys and 13 girls. Every year, our athletes and teams compete at the regional and state levels. The teams consistently earn league championships and in recent years have captured numerous state titles. Because our schools are such an integral part of the larger Cumberland Valley community, up to 10,000 loyal fans will arrive on Friday night football games to cheer on their Eagles.

    CV is located 12 miles west of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania’s state capital. The District covers 106 square miles and encompasses all of Hampden, Silver Spring, Monroe, and Middlesex Townships. Our state of the art facilities, infused with 21st Century technology, provide an optimal learning experience for each of our 8,000 students. These facilities include seven elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school. 

    Again, welcome to the Cumberland Valley School District. We are very proud of our students, teachers, coaches, and leadership team. If you are a student, parent, or simply a resident of our district – thank you. If you are new to CV or thinking about moving to our district, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can be reached at (717) 697-8261.
