Faith plays a fundamental role at Holy Family School. Students have the opportunity to experience their faith in many ways. Each day begins with a principal-led prayer. Students learn about the celebration of the Mass as well as the lives of the saints, various devotions and the importance of personal prayer. In addition, Catholic doctrine, history, and traditions are taught as part of our core curriculum.

The religious diversity of our student base provides a unique forum where students experience other religions and traditions with their peers. Our goal is to enhance our students’ exposure to all aspects of Catholicism and Christianity. Recognized for our faith formation and development, academic excellence, and commitment to diversity, we prepare students to become insightful thinkers and lifelong learners, who faithfully do God’s work as citizens of the world.

While Holy Family School remains a neighborhood-based school located in Malone, we attract a diverse population of ethnic and religious backgrounds from within a 30-mile radius. We believe this multicultural environment is essential to teaching children to live peacefully in our world, allowing them to experience life through each student’s unique perspective.

Our inclusive learning culture encourages students to observe, acknowledge and celebrate their similarities while being enriched by their differences. Our one commonality is that we are all unique.
