PHILOSOPHY

The educators of Holy Family Grade School believe that:

  • the aim of Catholic education as stated by the Bishops of the United States is to impart the Gospel message, build community, provide for prayer and worship, give service and practice justice which offers the direction for Catholic education in the Holy Family Community.
  • the principles of Catholicism are basic to the development of the whole person.
  • each child is a unique personality first loved by God, and therefore to be respected and loved by all people.
  • parents have the primary responsibility of educating their child, and that the faculty assist the parents by creating an atmosphere and providing experiences which will lead each child to the fullness of Catholic maturity: spiritually, mentally, socially, psychologically, emotionally, and physically.
