Inquiry-based Learning

"We were impressed with HFCA's inquiry-based learning environment which develops learners with confidence, curiosity, and enthusiasm!" The AdvancED STEM Certification Team, 2017 

Inquiry-based learning is a hallmark of Holy Family Catholic Academy's thinking curriculum and is supported by the findings of current educational research and best practices. HFCA's use of this method in preschool through Grade 8 is consistently aligned with the teaching goals of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IB) and was an impetus to seek authorization as an IB World School.

Inquiry learning transforms education from knowing the correct answer to knowing the important questions to ask.
