The Catholic Academy of the Holy Family is the heir to a long and
rich tradition of Jamestown area Catholic Schools that began in
1865 and included former parish schools for St. James, SS Peter and
Paul and Our Lady of Loreto. Today 7 different South County
Parishes provide spiritual and financial support to CAHF. At Holy
Family we believe that education should be a collaborative process
involving close interaction between parent, teacher and student.
Every parent is able to monitor their child's academic and social
progress through individualized weekly progress reports. In grades
3 - 8, assignment books ensure that parents are aware of all
homework. Each student receives a "Friday Folder" containing school
news, an events schedule, and curriculum updates. Student of the
month and Christian Witness Awards are presented monthly at our
regular Wednesday morning mass. While Holy Family is known for its
strong academic programs, we believe that academics are not enough.
Education must bring with it a moral responsibility. At Holy Family
our goal is not just to teach but also to lead each child to a
better more fulfilling way of life.
