Holy Family Catholic School is located in the northwest part of Austin, Texas on a beautiful 20 acre campus within the Texas Hill Country. We serve nearly 500 students from preschool through the eighth grade. Our school is an incorporated school, within the Catholic Diocese of Austin that holds a close association to seven area parishes, offering priority enrollment to qualified students.
Holy Family Catholic School is a regional school that works with parents to nurture the growth of the whole child - spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically. Our school is Catholic - promoting the teachings of the Church and inclusive of diverse cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. We seek to promote the development of these values by:
Fostering a commitment to know, love and serve God and one another (spiritual)
Encouraging each child to attain his or her fullest potential (intellectual)
Guiding students to become conscientious, successful members of a global community (social)
Respecting and celebrating each child's individuality (emotional)
Promoting a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle (physical)
Our Philosophy and Goals
Our school offers a curriculum stressing a challenging standards-driven academic program that seeks to prepare graduates for the most rigorous courses available in the high schools of their choice; a strong religious education program that equips graduates with a moral compass to last through their adolescent years and beyond; a climate of mutual respect and responsibility that fosters in graduates the ability and the will to be the servant leaders of tomorrow, and the educational programs and activities which promote self-respect and positive lifelong attitudes toward personal health and fitness.
Holy Family holds firm to our four core values which define our identity and culture and are the fundamental beliefs that guide the daily life of the school. The core values, which are reflected in the goals, are Catholic identify, faith formation, academic excellence and stewardship.
Blue Ribbon School
The U.S. Department of Education recognizes a select number of schools each year to receive this award. Holy Family was awarded this recognition in 2006, meaning that, at the very least, our test scores place us in the top 10% of all schools in the nation. To be considered, schools must be open for at least five years. Because we opened our doors in 2000, Holy Family won the designation in the very first year of eligibility to apply.
