As I walk the hallways of our school, I witness the transformational experience that Holy Family has on young women. Passionate about our mission, we intentionally create an encouraging school experience that draws out the natural gifts of our girls as well as their own unique voice. Just this past week, one of our 9th graders was excited to tell me about how she proudly auditioned for our school theater production and got the part, having been scared at the thought of the whole process. The confidence and enhanced sense of purpose and clarity on her face is so common among the girls at Holy Family, especially as they learn to recognize, accept, and embrace the unique qualities that make them who they are.
Our teachers are champions of young women. Beyond the classroom, our faculty are mentors, coaches, and advisors, committed to the purposeful and positive formation of heart and mind. 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 prepared 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 experience the Holy Family difference, a school community that is clear about its mission and confident in its program. The result is a high school experience filled with a feeling of community, joy and encouragement that cannot be replicated. 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.
Explore Holy Family for yourself. You will believe it too.
