Welcome to Holy Family Catholic School

Holy Family Catholic School (HFCS) was created in 2009 as a result of the consolidation of St. Joseph School (Addison) and St. Charles Borromeo School (Bensenville). HFCS provides an excellent academic program rooted in Catholic Culture. We are proud to serve students from a wide range of communities, including Bensenville, Addison, Elmhurst, Northlake, Franklin Park, and others.
We provide:

  • Full- and half-day preschool options
  • Full-day kindergarten through 8th grade
  • Before- and After-school Care
  • A variety of extra curricular activities

Our Mission

Holy Family Catholic School is a diverse community working together as a vital part of the Catholic Church. We strive to grow in our relationship with God and each other by proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ through religious instruction, faith development and academic excellence.

Our Philosophy

The future of the Catholic Church lies in our youth. As a result, we believe that it is our responsibility to provide a challenging academic program combined with doctrinally sound faith formation in a Christ-centered environment. Holy Family Catholic School is committed to help each student grow spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and globally to the fullest of their human potential, and to challenge them to recognize their humanity and uniqueness as a God-given gift. We believe that this is accomplished through the collaboration of home, school, community, and parish. Parents are the primary educators of their children and we have an obligation to foster this parent partnership in support of student progress, growth and learning.

Our Buzz Words

Be Responsible
Be Christian
Be Respectful
