Holy Family Catholic School is enthusiastic about being a parish school that has Christ at its center. We are a community of families who recognize that we want a experience for our children which goes beyond strong academics. We want an atmosphere where our children learn to be strong, loving and contributing members to our communities and the world.
Our Curriculum is designed to educate the whole child while providing a solid foundation for higher Catholic education. Ninety-five percent of our 8th grade graduates attend their first choice of school, including the top-ranked Catholic and College Preparatory high schools in the area. Our college age Holy Family alumni are currently attending Dartmouth, Yale, Harvard, Santa Clara, USC, UCLA, Stanford, TCU, MIT, Vanderbilt, St. Michael’s College-University of Toronto and SMU, among other distinguished colleges and universities nationally and internationally.
