What Makes HFA Different?

About Us

What is HFA?

Holy Family Academy is a private, Traditional Catholic liberal arts academy founded and operated by Catholic parents who recognize the gravity of their primary responsibility in the education of their children.

Holy Family Academy’s “great books” inspired classical liberal arts curriculum and religious instruction draw primarily from Catholic Tradition (including the Baltimore Catechism), and Holy Family Academy encourages all of its teachers and families to be:

  1. members of the Roman Catholic Church,
  2. active members of a parish, ideally one near their homes, and
  3. participants in parish faith life.

Our Mission

We aim to graduate young men and women who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding, who reason persuasively and articulate precisely, who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in the light of Tradition and Sacred Scripture, and who do so with eagerness in joyful submission to God. 

Our Vision

Supporting families as the primary educators of the student, we continue the development of spiritually centered lifelong learners, who are academically prepared, effective communicators and productive citizens of an increasingly global world. 

Our Story

Holy Family Academy is a striking example of how God works through the labor of his people, because it was through the faith and commitment of many families that Holy Family Academy became a reality.
