Holy Family Parish School

Holy Family Parish School was established in 1956 and is governed by the Diocese of Peoria.
Holy Family Parish currently has around 1000 families and the Conventual Franciscan Friars are the pastoral administrators.
Holy Family Parish is committed to advancing the religious training, educational opportunities, and the social and physical environment for our students.
The Catholic community is growing with cooperation and respect among students, staff, families, and parishioners.
The curriculum stresses academic achievement within a Christian community where the child feels that he/she is loved and respected by his/her peers as well as the teacher.
United with each other in meaningful liturgy and prayer, the students can further come to an understanding of the Christian life.
At Holy Family, we are attempting to 'teach as Jesus did.' The Diocesan curriculum guidelines, consistent with the State of Illinois guidelines, are followed for the teaching of all secular subject areas.
The curriculum is marked by current content and fresh approaches to methodology.
There is emphasis on principles rather than fact, on learning through problem solving rather than by precept.
We strive to offer a program which makes use of many sources of reading material, a wide variety of audio-visual and technology tools and a multi-text approach to the content areas. When the ability of our students is compared to their achievement level, Holy Family students achieve above their predicted level on almost every test.
These results give testimony to the efforts of our faculty and staff at Holy Family Parish School. Holy Family students meet or exceed all state standards.

After having gone through Holy Family from Kindergarten through eighth grade, I can not say that there is a better place to start learning the Catholic faith. I learned so much and made so many friends. Now, 10 years later, I feel as though Holy Family helped prepare me for my future better than anyone else could. Thank you Holy Family
