Holy Family High School

From the Head of School

As I walk the hallways of our school, I witness the transformational experience that Holy Family has on young women. Our girls are happy, confident, inquisitive, creative, and carry themselves with joy and poise. If you ask our girls what makes Holy Family so special, they will tell you that it is a sisterhood; a second family where they feel a profound sense of belonging and encouragement. Holy Family girls care for one another in all aspects of school life.
 
We intentionally create this environment because, in addition to strong academics, we are equally committed to the spiritual and personal well-being of our girls. This is an important part of our academic preparation, as it supports our commitment to ongoing growth in, and understanding of, how girls learn and what they need to mature into confident young women who are ready for college and ready for life. All of our graduates attend college or university, with 93% accepted to four-year schools. Our college preparatory programming is designed to support girls for acceptance into some of the most highly selective schools in the country. We form young women who attend the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Southern California, the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Kentucky, and Cal Poly Pomona for Engineering, just to name a few.
 
I encourage you to explore the Holy Family difference, a feeling of community, joy and empowerment that cannot be replicated. Many people have asked me, "Why Holy Family?" Simply put, we cannot imagine a world without confident young women who have faith in themselves, faith in each other, and faith in God. 
 
I invite you to experience Holy Family for yourself; I know you will feel it, too.
