Holy Family Academy Reviews
Our son is a graduate of Holy Family Academy and we are very satisfied with the classical, Catholic education that our son received during his six years there. The curriculum was challenging and the Catholic faith was witnessed and taught by competent teachers. Holy Family Academy was a great blessing to our family!
We are so grateful to Holy Family Academy for the wonderful classical, Catholic education that our son received there! He was very well prepared for college and the Christian formation that he received at the Academy was second to none! Thank you to the Board, the faculty and staff for their dedication to the students of Holy Family Academy!
Holy Family Academy is a wonderful school! Our son received an outstanding classical education that prepared him very well for college. The Christian formation that he received during his teenage years was second to none and we wish that all of our children could have had the same opportunity! We are very grateful to God and Holy Family Academy and to its Board, Faculty and Staff for all of their efforts in the education of our son and so many other students!
My experience as a parent of a child attending HFA is unfavorable. The administrator was unresponsive to concerns that I brought to her attention. She would listen but would rather "pray away" a problem rather than confront them. There's nothing wrong with praying, but I'm sure the Lord would like us to join the talents and abilities he gave us with the prayer. Overall, the school prefers that parents simply pay their tuition and keep their mouths shut. Academically the emphasis is more on the humanities with an overdose of Latin. Math and Science instruction is poor. The school follows the correct teachings of the Catholic Church but staff and governing body display a self-righteous, "We're better Catholics than everyone else" attitude.
Founders of the school had good intentions, but those intentions were poorly implemented.
