Holy Family School Key Messages
Faith is Our Foundation
Holy Family School was founded in 1954 as St. Agnes School. Families valued Catholic education and more parishes supported the school, expanding the enrollment. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish and St. Agnes Parish joined to support Holy Family School with strong Catholic tradition which continues today. The pastors from St. Agnes, St. Elizabeth Seton and the Quad Parishes rotate turns to lead Mass with the students. The students pray the rosary monthly at Students of Prayer. The students attend First Friday Adoration.
We Achieve, We Believe in Academic Excellence
Holy Family School is one of five Catholic Schools in the nation accredited as a Middle Years International Baccalaureate School. International Baccalaureate (IB) expects progress and achievement. Both teachers and students are accountable to the IB Criteria, which are continuously reviewed and standardized by IB evaluators worldwide to preserve academic integrity. Teachers utilize technology programs through STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) curriculum in kindergarten through eighth grade. iDads is one of the community resource groups who support the technological advances to maximize the students’ academic potential.
