Mission Statement

As a mission of the Catholic church, Holy Family School provides formation of a life-long commitment to the Catholic faith and delivers a superior academic curriculum through the lens of faith.

Philosophy

Holy Family School expresses its educational ministry through the objectives of personal spirituality, social justice, and a strong academic program in accord with the Curriculum Guide for Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Joliet.

  1. To develop the total Catholic personality by instilling in the students a respect for life and reverence for Catholic living and worship.
  2. To develop within the school a strong religious education program based on Catholic Theology, Scripture, Liturgical experience, and service so that each child will grow and develop in the Catholic way of life.
  3. To facilitate the intellectual, social, and physical development of each child through a variety of instructional methods such as small and large group instruction, departmental classes, and other tools for basic knowledge and formation.

Holy Family School recognizes parents as the primary educators of their children, and as such, we encourage them to become active participants in the spiritual, academic, and character development of their children. Holy Family School teaches respect for the divesity of others. In realizing that Catholic education is of the utmost importance, we guide the children of today to become the Catholic citizens of tomorrow.
