School Notes

  • Holy Family School "Where every child is a blessing."   In a world where children are surrounded by conflicting messages telling them that right and wrong are a matter of interpretation, Holy Family School prides itself on teaching the difference. We provide an outstanding Catholic education in a safe, secure, loving environment. Our commitment to the future of our children goes beyond academics. We continually teach basic values by requiring ongoing student involvement in social justice projects. As they work to improve their skills, abilities and knowledge, our students are also learning the importance of making a difference in their own community. You want more than basic education for your children; you want the best. That is why Holy Family School considers its Middle States Commission accreditation a starting point for excellence. Their standards are extremely high; ours are higher. As children grow they face unique challenges that cannot be met in schools with thousands of others the same age. Our progressive student/teacher ratio ensures students do not get lost while finding themselves. Our educational environment is structured to meet their needs with separate learning environments for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten through fifth grade, and sixth through eighth grade. Through continual, close association with others the same age, our students form strong relationships that can last a lifetime. While our technological capabilities are impressive, Holy Family School also understands the importance of traditional education. Our library features more than 10,000 books; our students use a state-of-the-art science lab to learn about the world around them, music and art are taught in specialized classrooms, and we offer a very active team and intramural sports program for all grade levels. When you entrust your child to us, that is a trust we hold extremely dear.
