Transformative Encounters with Christ

As a Catholic school system, our mission  Forming disciples of Jesus Christ through Catholic educational excellence – quite literally means we represent the future of the global Church. This is an important job, and it is one our educators do not take lightly.  

Holy Family Catholic Schools, by God’s grace and in partnership with families and parishes, empowers students to generously live an integrated life-long and joy-filled faith through comprehensive Catholic formation and meaningful sacramental experiences.

Key Catholic faith formation initiatives:

  • Develop a personalized religion curriculum that provides a comprehensive foundation in the Catholic faith and inspires students to identify their calling and live their life in communion with the Church.
  • Establish a campus ministry fund to support student-driven missionary work surrounding the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.
  • Sequence local, national and global service offerings K-12.
  • Partner with local pastors to implement faith educational programming for faculty to support faith-rich curriculum and experiences.
