Holy Family School is celebrating 57 years of Catholic academic excellence. The students that attend Holy Family School come from 31 Catholic Parishes and 34 Long Island School Districts. Their cultural, economic, and academic diversity gives a beautiful personality to our school family, similar to what one would find in a loving family.
Each student is known by name, and loved for his or her God-given gifts and talents. The faculty, staff, and administration of Holy Family School take very seriously the sacred trust parents place in us when they leave their children in our care. We strive to be an extension of their home and family life by ensuring that the beliefs, values, and morals that are aligned with our faith and their family are evident in all we do as a school family.
The underlying theme for all Catholic Schools is: “Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service”. At Holy Family School, we live that theme, while simultaneously adhering to our personal tagline: “making a difference, one child at a time”.
We at Holy Family School are proud to say we are growing in student population and in academic success. We are considered a National School of Excellence; we are Middle States accredited, and we won the title of Best of Long Island.
