Harrisburg Catholic Elementry School

Holy Family School, a faith community enriched by a diversity of cultures, abilities, and talents, challenges adults and children to develop to their fullest potential in a safe, supportive, learning environment where dedicated staff, in partnership with each family, strives to form the whole child through an integrated curriculum based upon academic excellence and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Today Holy Family School continues as a Catholic elementary school, kindergarten through eighth grade.
In this role it is an integral part of the teaching ministry of the Catholic Church in Holy Family Parish in the Diocese of Harrisburg.
Students in Holy Family school must conduct themselves in such a fashion that their behavior will reflect favorably on the individual student and on the school, will show consideration for administrators, teachers, staff and fellow students and will create a harmonious school atmosphere.
To accomplish this all students must recognize their individual responsibilities and discharge them in accordance with school regulations.
