Strongly rooted in Catholic values, Holy Spirit Regional Catholic School’s mission is to promote excellence in the whole person and reflect each student’s unique qualities in pre- kindergarten through eighth grade. Students are provided daily opportunities through a challenging, differentiated curriculum in a technologically-rich environment.

Accredited by SACS-CASI for over ten years, Holy Spirit Regional Catholic School maintains high standards by incorporating state standards with Diocesan Benchmarks that elevate our differentiated curriculum. The school maintains these standards to enhance pedagogically sound practices through annual school improvement plans, 5-year self-studies, and diocesan reaccreditation visits.

Holy Spirit Regional Catholic School fosters a creative, nurturing environment embracing the truth that each child is created by God for his or her own purpose. Included within our curriculum are opportunities for our students to be faithful stewards and good citizens through participation in community projects and various charitable activities for those in need. This affords our students the experience of living gospel values. As a result of these experiences, the children witness to and partake of Catholic values in action. The school’s vision is to help students to be faith-filled individuals as they discover and utilize their gifts and talents through academic success and service to others.

The administration, faculty, and staff of Holy Spirit Regional Catholic School commit themselves to the education of all of our students for the purpose of learning for life. We have taken on this task by working to create an environment where students are academically prepared, spiritually nourished, and poised for the challenges of their 21st century future.
