Requirements

 
Parent Meeting–We welcome all new parents to meet with Mrs. Kate O’Brien, Principal or Mrs. Laura Clark, Assistant Principal as part of the admissions process. While we are in e-learning, these meetings may take place through a telephone call or Zoom meeting. Please contact the school office to schedule. hfca@holyfamilyparish.org 

Holy Family Academy embraces diversity. While our Catholic faith is clearly part of our identity, families of all faiths are welcome to join our growing community.

Documentation:

HFCA requires all new registrants and currently enrolled students to provide a certified birth certificate, baptismal certificate (if applicable), and Illinois Certificate of Health Examination documenting proof of physical and all necessary immunizations. Click below for list of Health Requirements (medical, dental and vision documents) required by grade. 

Children must meet the following age criteria for admittance into the following grades:
  • 3 years old on or before September 1st for 3 year old preschool, and must be potty trained.
  • 4 years old on or before September 1st for 4 year old preschool.
  • 5 years old on or before September 1st for kindergarten.

These age requirements apply even if the child has previously been enrolled in a school that has made an exception to the deadline. However, we do honor local public school testing results that recommend different placement.

Additionally, students entering HFCA in grades 1 through 8 will be asked to provide current academic information from their former school (student grades, teacher recommendations and test scores). Our office staff will be happy to help in this process. Please contact Kathy Knuth 847-907-3481 or kknuth@holyfamilyparish.org for more information.
