Bishop McDevitt High School provides the opportunity for students from the Greater Harrisburg area to receive an excellent college-preparatory education enriched with the Gospel message. This program will help develop analytical and communication skills, a sense of value of religion and history, an appreciation for the fine arts, and mathematics and science skills with vigorous preparation for the world of advanced study and work. Because we are a diverse people, and we recognize individual differences, McDevitt has structured its curriculum aimed at five levels of ability. Each student is placed in courses equal to his/her ability level and performance. Each student then will have the potential to be successful at his/her particular level.

AP –  Advanced Placement
H – Honors
ACP – Accelerated College Prep
CP  Level I –  College Prep
CP Level II  –  College Prep

Each student must schedule at least  major courses for the year. (Many students elect seven courses.) Mandated minor courses must be scheduled in the sequence directed by the school. The school day consists of nine class periods including the lunch period.
