The school is absolutely wonderful! This is my daughter's first year and we were welcomed into the school just like family! The principal, teachers, and staff are amazing. The school's teachings are of very high standards from highly exceptional teachers with a strong work ethic. The school curriculum is of a high level of teaching standards that my child will be very well prepared for high school. The one thing I admire the most is that the teachers actually stay after school to help the children that may need a little extra help, and not suggesting tutors, but staying afterwards to help. This to me shows the true dedication of the teachers at the school. Everyone is caring and giving of themselves, and it rubs off on the children! Holy Family Catholic School is top-notch school, a lifetime investment for your child!

I just found out that Holy Family Catholic School outperformed Prince George's County and The State of Maryland on it standardized Math and Reading Scores for 3-8 Grades. Small class size, committed teachers and the "New Principle of the Year" for The Archdiocese of Washington are building a strong foundation for our children's success.

My son has been at holy family since PK4. He is now in Kindergarten and can actually read and he also exceeds standards in math testing which is on par with the 3-8th graders who have scores the far exceed the Prince Georges County and the State of Maryland scoring in Reading and Math with 87% of students who at some level meet or exceed in reading and 79% of who at some level meet or exceed in math. The teachers are dedicated and caring. The class sizes are small and the family atmosphere is refreshing. The principal was named the principal of the year for 2016 by the archdiocese of Washington. I absolutely love this school and I actively participate in the PTA. The also have a certified before and after care program open for 6am -6pm.
