Holy Family Catholic School

Parma, Ohio

The Holy Family Catholic School staff is passionate and committed to working with parents in achieving the immense task of educating their children.  We believe while the parents are the primary faith educators for their children, our staff is dedicated to the Catholic education.  We strive to educate each child as an individual while nurturing their social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and physical growth.  Holy Family Catholic School staff encourage independent thinking through academic inquiry, embracing the uniqueness of self and others, working with others, introduction of Christian values, classroom and homework habits.

Our Mission Statement

At Holy Family Catholic School, we’re building a better world where Christ’s love can be spread through education, service and unity one student at a time.

This is true at the heart of our academics. Modeling Jesus, our instruction will enrich students using all resources with positive, self-centered techniques in order to motivate them along their journey toward success. During their time here, Holy Family students develop the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, mental and physical attributes that will last a lifetime.
