Why Choose HFCA

Recognized Internationally and Nationally for Curriculum and Instruction

 
Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions for any parent. We all want to provide our children with a good education--every parent always has and always will. However, the definition of a “good” education has evolved significantly in the past few years.

Today, a traditional academic curriculum focused on traditional lesson plans is not enough. We are proud to say that HFCA offers your children a unique learning environment that empowers them to become thinkers, leaders grounded in faith. We prepare our students for their future, for jobs not yet developed. Our students learn to adapt to and excel in an increasingly global community. Our students develop skills and character to challenge the status quo and stand up to make a positive difference in our world.

HFCA’s success is built on a foundation of innovative and dedicated teachers, an inquiry-based curriculum strengthened and enhanced by the framework of the International Baccalaureate Organization, and a warm and welcoming faith-based environment.

In 2018, Holy Family Catholic Academy (Inverness) became the first suburban elementary school in Illinois to become authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School--Primary Years Programme (IB), joining only 16 other schools in Illinois to be awarded this distinction.

Becoming an IB World School follows our other recent successes of being named the first middle school in the state to become STEM certified by AdvancED as well as the distinction of receiving a 2017 US Department of Education Blue Ribbon Award for exemplary learning and teaching. Our recognition internationally and nationally is a testament to our staff’s steadfast commitment to continually improving our curriculum and instruction.
