Dear Parents and Guardians,

You want what is best for your child. Because you wish them success in all areas of life, a Catholic school is a very good choice. Because you value your Catholic faith and desire to share that faith with your child, a Catholic school is the best choice. Because we also want what is best for your child—and you—Holy Family Catholic School is the right choice.

Parents want to send their children to the best school available. Why is Holy Family Catholic School that school? Holy Family Catholic School serves as your extended family. The same values taught at your home are able to be taught in our school. We offer a family environment in which your children can discuss and live out the values upon which their education is based. We are and continue to strive to be a "holy family." The formation of community is an important part of our Catholic school educational experience. Students at HFCS are happy children. They know that they are loved. They belong.

HFCS provides an educational program based on Catholic beliefs and values, enabling every child to grow in their understanding of themselves, their relationship with Jesus Christ and their relationship with others. Students are taught the value of both personal prayer and community prayer. They are also taught the importance of service to others as disciples of Jesus Christ. Our students receive a strong academic and faith-centered education from caring teachers and staff members in a positive, nurturing environment. Your children acquire knowledge and develop the skills necessary for success in higher educational pursuits and a wide range of careers. They will succeed in life. We prepare them for that.

Holy Family Catholic School strives to stay current with technology use in the classroom. We were proud to receive the "Technology School of the Year" award among the other Catholic schools in the Diocese for increasing the access, use and integration of technology for students at all levels. We continue to examine and develop all areas of curriculum, from reading, writing, and 'rithmetic, to the humanities and beyond.

Holy Family Catholic School takes pride in opening up the benefits of Catholic education to families who are normally precluded from the advantages of a rigorous academic and faith-centered education. Not surprisingly, the economy continues to be challenging for many of our families who continue to make education a top priority and do their best to make the financial commitment to assist their children in obtaining a Catholic education. We make every effort within our means, with the support of St. Joseph and St. Charles Borromeo parishes, along with the Catholic Schools Office and the Catholic Education Foundation of the Diocese of Joliet, to give the financial support necessary to provide an affordable Catholic education.

We are very excited about the upcoming school year and the future of our school as we continue to provide a faith-filled learning environment for our children.

Thank you for choosing Holy Family Catholic School. We take seriously the trust you place in us when you decide that our school is the right choice, that Holy Family is the Catholic School and the best educational environment for your child.

Be assured of our continued prayers for you, your children and your family.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
