2020-2021 Academic Year
Thank you for your interest in Holy Family Catholic Academy. We realize selecting a school for your family is a very important decision. We completed the 2019-2020 year with e-learning, and welcomed back our students for the 2020-2021 school year. The majority of our students are participating in in-person while some families have chosen our e-learning option
The Office of Catholic Schools has released the full reopening plan and we prepared throughout the summer to safely and thoughtfully welcome returning and new families back to school.
