At Holy Family Catholic Academy, we believe, as Jesus taught us, that each child is a unique individual created by Almighty God. We believe that parents are the primary educators of our students. In partnership with them, we strive to provide an opportunity for maximum development of spiritual, moral, academic, physical, and social characteristics. We are dedicated to this goal in the spirit of mutual respect focusing on the personal growth of each child by teaching Catholic Doctrine, building community, and providing service to others. Holy Family Catholic Academy strives to realize each student?s individual learning potential by providing multiple experiences for successful and life-long learning.
Role of the Parent
We believe that parents have definite responsibilities in education. They need to have a basic confidence in the Academy and they need to impart this confidence to the students. The parents may do this by cooperating to the fullest with the Academy, by encouraging the student to give his/her best efforts to his/her daily responsibilities, and by participating in school activities.
Role of the Teacher
We believe that the role of the teacher in the educational process is to provide opportunities for the individual to achieve at the maximum level of his/her capacity, to create a learning situation in which individual motivation for learning is the stimulus for achievement, and to promote through teaching and example the principles of the Christian way of life.
Role of the Student
We believe that the student must have responsibilities in the educational program of his/her community. Most important of these is attitude. The student is obliged to come with an open mind, equipped with all the necessary materials, ready to fulfill the responsibilities in the learning process. The basic attitude should be that the school is an institution of opportunity, staffed with trained personnel to help the student become a contributing member of a global society.
