We're at home in Catasauqua

Lehigh High Valley Christian High School would like to thank our wonderful neighbors for their cooperation in clearing the parking lot when we celebrated our 25th anniversary last month. We are also thankful to the Catasauqua borough, St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church and Hartzell's Pharmacy for allowing us additional parking space for that event. What a pleasure it has been to be located in this wonderful community! And we recently were notified by Mayor Barbara Schlegel that the Shade Tree Commission is planting a tree in the park to honor our school on Saturday, April 27!
