Holy Family is proud and privileged to be a Catholic school. We take the daily practice of our faith very seriously and strive to serve the Lord with joyful hearts. Some of the many ways we celebrate our faith include:
Holy Family Catholic School is accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA). A significant element of the WCEA expectations is the foundational Catholic identity of the schools it accredits. The Catholic Identity standards below are integral to our identity as a Catholic School.
The school has a mission statement and philosophy statement, which indicate the integration of the Roman Catholic Faith into all aspects of school life.
The school has a Religion curriculum and instruction that is faithful to the Roman Catholic Church teachings and meets the requirements set forth by the USCCB.
The Local Ordinary approves those who teach the Catholic Faith (Canon 805), and there is ongoing formation for catechetical and instructional competence.
The school maintains an active partnership with parents whose fundamental concern is the spiritual and academic education of their children. (Canon 796)
The school has a service-oriented outreach to the Church and the civic community after the example of Jesus Christ who said, “I have given you an example so that you may copy what I have done to you.” (John 13:15)
The school uses signs, sacramentals, traditions, and rituals of the Roman Catholic Church.
All school personnel are actively engaged in bringing the Good News of Jesus into the total educational experience.
HFCS welcomes all families, regardless of faith denomination, seeking a high-quality, faith-based, academically excellent educational placement. During Mass, we welcome non-Catholic students and guests to come up to the minister at Communion and receive a blessing. Click here for more FAQs.
If you want to become Catholic, there are many opportunities to explore the Catholic faith! All three of our affiliate parish communities offer yearly classes in Catholicism called RCIA (for adults) and RCIC (for children).
