Mission Statement

Holy Family Catholic High School offers students excellence in education by providing opportunities to grow spiritually, morally, intellectually and physically within a community of faith.

Mission Statement

We empower and encourage our students to achieve personal excellence, to use their talents to lead, to serve God, one another and the larger community.

Four Pillars of Excellence

Integrity – discerning right from wrong; consistently acting upon that discernment.

Scholarship – having a love of learning exemplified in strong academic performance.

Leadership – influencing others in positive ways.

Faith – searching for and finding God through prayer and service to others.

- Kathie Brown, Principal
