    Calling All Band Alumni!

    All alumni of the Delone Catholic High School Band (marching or concert, any graduation year) are cordially invited to play in the bleachers with the current Marching Band at the upcoming homecoming game on Friday, Oct. 13, 2017. Mr. Yealy can supply some drums, but most alumni will need to bring their own instruments. Color Guard alumni and former instrumentalists who do not have access to an instrument are also invited to join us in the bleachers. All participants are asked to register online by Wednesday Sept. 27. Playing participants are kindly asked to make a one-time $5 donation at the game to help the band purchase additional copies of the iconic "yellow books" for alumni to use.  If possible, participants should plan to meet in the bleachers around 6 p.m. on Oct. 13. Contact byealy@delonecatholic.org with any questions. We hope to see you there!

  • Inclement Weather Reminders

    For delays and closures: Delone Catholic parents are notified via One-Call of school delays and closures. The information, along with early dismissal information, is posted on the website, Facebook, and Twitter as soon as possible. You may also call the school at 717-637-5969 and the recording will notify you of a delay or closure. WGAL is notified immediately upon the decision to delay or close. In addition to T.V., closures and delays are posted on http://www.wgal.com/weather/closings

    For early dismissals: Phone calls from parents will not be accepted for dismissal requests. The phone lines are needed to receive information from the school districts. We also encourage students to call parents from the office to inform them of the different drop off schedule for bus transportation so that an adult may be available for the transport from the bus stop to home.

    Please be alert to those weather forecasts for incoming snow possibilities. If you wish your student to be dismissed at a different time, you must send in a note with your student for each dismissal. No emails and no phone calls will be accepted. Notes must be turned in before homeroom, on the day they are to be applied. You may not submit one note for the duration of the school year. A note must be delivered on each separate occasion.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

International Student Program at Delone Catholic

Delone Catholic welcomes students from around the world to join our educational community. The purpose of the international student program is to enrich the educational experience of our local students by giving them the opportunity to learn the global nature of our world. Students currently studying in high school today will be most successful if they have an understanding, appreciation and tolerance for the cultural differences of people and nations. No doubt today’s students will live, work and succeed as members of a global community.

Three W International Partnership

Delone Catholic is pleased to announce a partnership with ThreeW International. Three W International is North America’s foremost international student management company with the most comprehensive services for U.S. private schools. With operations in the United States, China, and Brazil, Three W partners with outstanding private schools to develop mission appropriate international student enrollment plans. This partnership provides schools with support in strategic planning, professional development, and guidance on curriculum and international student support. Three W International identifies international students who are an appropriate fit, based on the school’s mission and admission criteria, and who enhance the cultural diversity of the school’s community. Unlike exchange programs, where students study abroad for a school year or less, these international students enroll for multiple years with the intent of graduating from a U.S. high school.

Faces & Our Cultures Partnership

Delone Catholic has participated in the Faces and Our Cultures cultural exchange program since 2011. Faces & Our Cultures Program is a Cultural Exchange Program between Guatemala and the USA. Young Guatemalan Cultural Ambassadors, between the ages of 11 and 17, travel to the USA to share and learn from the American Culture. They bring Cultural Projects to share with their community in order to promote Bilateral Cultural Enrichment.

Host Family Information

The International Student Program at Delone Catholic High School relies on host families, who can provide a nurturing environment to international students while they visit and study in the United States. Host families can provide one of two levels of commitment:

  • Faces and Our Cultures Host Families host a cultural ambassador from Guatemala for an eight-week cultural exchange. Guatemalan ambassadors visit the United States while on their summer break from school and in exchange, the host family may send their child to Guatemala over our summer break from school.
  • Three W International Host Families host a full-time Delone Catholic student from China or Brazil. Hosting an international student requires a ten-month commitment. A stipend of $800 per month is provided during the ten-month stay. Each year, all parties will evaluate the arrangement and you may choose to host the same student for more than one year of his/her Delone Catholic career.
