Holy Family School is one of 28 schools in the Diocese of Evansville and consists of pre-school through grade 8. We currently have 45 pre-school students and 153 students in kindergarten through 8th grade, providing for a 16:1 student teacher ratio.
With a strong tradition of academic excellence, Holy Family School continues to score
well above the state averages in both Math and Language Arts on the ISTEP+,
Indiana's state standardized test. Students have demonstrated their fullest potential as evidenced, in part, by the high percentage of students receiving PASS+ on the Math portion of the ISTEP+. In 2012, Holy Family School achieved a new milestone with 100% of all students in grades three through eight passing the Math portion of the ISTEP+. Language Arts scores also remain high, with over 95% of students
passing. Holy Family School has a long standing tradition of being named an Exemplary School by the Indiana Department of Education based on the high achievement scores coupled with a 97% student attendance rate. In 2012, Holy Family School also earned the distinction of Indiana Four Star School. Additionally, Holy Family School received an A rating on Indiana's A-F Accountability Scale, which combines student achievement and student growth to assess the school’s performance.
Students from Holy Family School have enjoyed success in many other ways, often through participation in one of our many clubs. Our Junior High Spell Bowl team has advanced to the state competition several times, even winning the title in 2010-11. Students in Lego Robotics took 1st and 8th place in the Regional Competition in 2013. Our Math Bowl team has placed Top 10 in the State the last several years. Students' art work has been shown in the Downtown Art Show and has often taken one of the top awards in the various categories.
In addition to these accomplishments, Holy Family School students have continued to experience success in high school. They have held roles of leadership in a variety of clubs, such as National Honor Society and Business Professionals of America. Many of our alumni are student-athletes and have been named Captains, again showing their leadership both in the classroom and on the court. We are also proud of our alumni who have gone on to be in the Top 10% of their graduating class, with several receiving Valedictorian and Salutatorian honors.
