Overall good school. Some participation of extracurricular activities coukd be better. Also, lacks a men’s volleyball program and the basketball program has been terrible developing players. Coaches only support 6 or 7 players and the rest of the team has extremely short playing time. Academically is excellent and continuous to promote Christian values.

As a senior, I can look back and honestly say that my time at McD was everything I had hoped for. Even though I have my days with the decisions of the administration and teachers, I couldn't ask for anything better. The only problem I have is the yearly raise on our tuition to recruit football players and have them attend for free. That needs a change along with more teachers respecting the students because there are a few who don't. The education is better than the surrounding schools and you can easily network with thousands of successful alums who still bleed royal blue and gold after all these years. We are a family, don't let anyone tell you different. Once a crusader always a crusader.
Bishop McDevitt is definitely one of the better schools in the area. The school’s administration and student body are very supportive and uplifting. Because it is a private school, living in a certain area is not a requirement. This brings diversity, allowing students from all around the Harrisburg area to be together regularly. One thing I wish McDevitt would look to improve, is the list of choices we have as electives and also include a co-op program.
