Mission & Belief

The Millcreek Township School District's mission is to provide a world-class education that prepares students to reach their potential as life-long learners and responsible citizens.

We believe that...

  • Families play a critical role in student success

  • Each student is important and should be treated with dignity and respect

  • All students should have the opportunity to participate in academic programs that are relevant and rigorous

  • A learning community embraces diversity and allows individuals to achieve their maximum potential

  • Learning is a life-long experience and does require different approaches

The PA Department of Education requires school districts to plan for continuous improvement of leadership, teaching and learning. Comprehensive plans are developed and submitted to the state once every three years.

Comprehensive Plan as of 2021:
