Dear Parents, Holy Spirit Catholic School offers three year olds to eighth graders a Catholic based and academically enriching environment where each child is loved and known by name. We dedicate ourselves to inspiring students to actively participate in their own education through a student centered approach. We advocate the relevance of our classroom work to everyday life while recognizing and supporting each student’s talents and interests. We offer a solid core curriculum with an environment rich in music, art, technology, and physical education. We also offer the newest movement in education known as Makerspace where we challenge the students to engineer, collaborate, and problem solve. Our dedication to the spiritual development of your child is rooted in our Catholic faith. It is important we embrace the ideals and teachings of our Divine Lord and build on each student’s catholic formation with true compassion and desire. We embrace a fresh and innovative approach towards the vitality of our school. We continue to share activities that demonstrate the vibrancy and life of our school. There are Five Core Values we incorporate into our program to help us achieve this goal: Spirit in Faith * Spirit as Family * Spirit with Warmth * Spirit through Service * Spirit for Excellence In partnership with you, the parents of our students, we can continue to help nurture and grow your children’s gifts and talents. It is important we work together! Pray that the Holy Spirit continues to guide you to be the role models God created you to be.

Mission

A solid academic foundation through a strong core curriculum and Christian formation through the teachings and practice of the Catholic faith.

Purpose

Faith formation is an ongoing process meant to draw us into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church. It is much broader than simply “instructing in the faith;” rather it is the term that embodies the curriculum of the whole Church, including community, liturgy, spirituality, and teaching. Because faith formation encompasses much of the work and mission of the Church, we strive to provide opportunities for all students to get involved in faith formation.

Quality

We take pride in maintaining high academic expectations and achievements among our students. We strive to promote student-centered environments rich in faith, academics, and extracurricular activities to develop the whole child. With this being said, we are mindful that each child is unique, bringing special talents and interests to our community. We recognize the imperative need for students to understand how their classroom work translates to the world in which they live.

Dynamic Community 

Our Music curriculum immerses students in many different styles of music. Our students also learn to Cantor for Mass, as well as have an opportunity to sing in the choir during weekly Masses. Our Art curriculum spirals year-to-year. In Kindergarten, students learn the foundational elements of Art: color, line, shape, form & texture. In computers, students will develop keyboarding skills and explore software tools that will enrich their learning. Students will learn Spanish through games, videos, and songs.
