Thank you for your interest in Holy Family School. We take very seriously the sacred trust you, as parents and guardians, put in us when you leave your most precious children at the doors of our school. Each and every student at Holy Family School is known and loved. They are known, by name, as individuals and loved for the God-given gifts and talents they bring to our Holy Family School "family". This allows us to not only believe in, but also adhere to our tag line: "making a difference, one child at a time".
Margaret Mead writes: "We are now at a point where we must educate our children in what no one knew yesterday, and prepare our schools for what no one knows yet." This thought puts forth a great challenge and offers much inspiration. Education changes and evolves more rapidly than ever before and we, as Catholic School Educators, must exercise humility and be life-long learners. Children truly learn what they live on every possible level. It is our obligation to model behaviors that are based in our faith, as well as instill the desire to learn and be productive members of the ever changing world we live in. The faculty and staff at Holy Family School do just that!
While I am keenly aware of the financial sacrifice it is to send children to Catholic School, especially in these difficult financial times, I truly believe it is worth it. Holy Family School is an extension of our students’ families. We work together with the parents and guardians to assure that each student reaches his or her full potential.
Holy Family School is accredited by the Middle States Association, we are recognized as a National School of Excellence, and we are very proud that we were selected as a winner in two categories in Long Island Press' 2014 "Best of Long Island": Best Catholic Elementary School and Best Elementary School Principal. The following quote from Virginia Satir describes the Holy Family School family perfectly. "Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible - the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family." If this is what you are looking for, Holy Family School is the right choice for you!
