Holy Family School, located in Jasper, IN, was founded in 1951 by the Sisters of Providence. As one of twenty-eight schools in the Diocese of Evansville, Holy Family School takes great pride in providing a solid foundation and instructional excellence based on Gospel values. Students at Holy Family School are consistently challenged to meet high expectations and goals on a daily basis, thus creating a strong tradition of academic excellence.

Holy Family School also realizes that it is essential to develop other aspects of a life-long learner. The school fosters skills that are imperative for success both in school and in future endeavors, such as responsibility, time management, leadership, and team-building. Additionally, spiritual growth is fostered through required service hours and community and global outreach, leading students to develop compassion for others.

Also integral to the success of Holy Family School is the strong leadership of both the administrator and staff. The administrator collaborates with staff to set high expectations for academic excellence through a shared vision. Teachers attend a variety of professional development opportunities to stay abreast of the latest educational trends and best practices, and collaborate with one another to improve classroom instruction. Holy Family students reap the benefits of challenging lessons that are data driven and based on the needs of the individual student.

Holy Family staff, students, and parents are given the true ability to educate the whole child. Not only are the academic needs of the students met, but spiritual, social, and physical needs as well, through merging faith based values with an excellence in education. Holy Family School is a place where FAITH and KNOWLEDGE meet.
