The mission of Galveston Catholic School is the integration of faith with the student's culture, environment, and values.
This integration develops a student's relationship with God in a Christian Community which fosters service to one another.
This is expressed in the student's daily life at school, at home, and in the community.
Though Galveston Catholic School offers a basic, modern curriculum, its mission is focused not only on the students' education, but also on fostering their spiritual growth.
By integrating faith with the student's culture, environment, and values, students are assisted with developing their relationship with God and their fellow students.

School Reviews

My child really enjoys Holy Family Catholic School. The small class sizes allow him to learn and get individual attention from the teachers. That and the activities offered a the school make him feel very comfortable and allow him to make friends easily.
