Welcome to Holy Family Catholic School!
Welcome from Fr. Jorge Miramontes, Principal and Pastor!
The Catholic faith is the greatest gift that we can receive from God. Catholic parents have the first responsibility to pass on the Catholic faith to their children. But, the Catholic school is one of the best tools for Catholic parents to help them pass on the faith to the children. Holy Family Catholic School IS one of the best tools available to families in Waterloo, Marshall, Lake Mills and the surrounding communities for grades 3K through 6. And, it's accessible for all families with available tuition assistance through the JMJ Scholarship Fund!
Children spend many hours each week in school. The best school environment for them is one that is marked by:
- Academic Excellence. All parents want their children to be challenged academically so as to achieve their potential, develop good habits and succeed at the next level. Holy Family Catholic School students consistently score well on standardized tests and make the honor roll at the next level after graduation.
- Catholic Formation. Students who encounter Jesus Christ and know their faith remain in the Catholic Church. Those who don’t leave the Church. At Holy Family Catholic School, students attend Mass 2 times per week, pray regularly throughout the day, and learn through a curriculum that presents the Catholic teachings and worldview. They have the time to get to know Jesus and their faith.
- Christian Community. In times when many school environments include bullying, it is more important than ever that students find a Christian community at school. Holy Family Catholic School is like a family, where students know everyone else at school, including all of the teachers. Students learn to respect each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.
