Four years ago the parents of the HFCHS Class of 2017 were looking for much of the same things that today, the parents of the Class of 2021 are seeking. They wanted a welcoming environment where their children would be known, challenged, supported, and would discover new talents and passions. We are proud of our Fire 2017 graduates, and we can’t wait to start the journey with our Fire 2021 incoming 9th graders!
Our graduates attend some of the best college and universities across the country. Click here to see a list of the schools of our 1673 alumni. The National Student Clearinghouse®, the leading provider of educational reporting, tells us our students are two times more likely to graduate from college than the national average.
“At Holy Family, I was able to form and run a club, play sports, and challenge myself academically because of the teachers’ never-ending support and dedication. They create an environment where learning is the focus, not the deadlines. Education at Holy Family is more than just educational; it prepares you for the future.”
–Lorena Palattao ‘17, College: UCLA, Major: Mathematics
$10 Million in College Scholarships
The 103 graduates of the Class of 2017 earned $10.32 million in college scholarships and they accepted over $3.5 million of those scholarships. As she announced the scholarship amounts at graduation, President/Principal Kathleen Brown stated: “With these awards, colleges and universities acknowledge in our students a skill set they may not otherwise see in other students. They want our students to attend their institutions.”

Application totals for Class of 2021 largest since 2010
Applications for the Class of 2021 are approaching the highest we’ve seen since 2010. The Class of 2021 students and families are excited to be a part of the FIRE! Admissions work continues all summer long and we welcome new families every week!
Our sophomore class is expected to grow by 10-15% by the end of summer. Why are those students looking to make the move to Holy Family? Here’s what one recent transfer told us in his application, “I would like to attend Holy Family because of the small class sizes and the sense of community. I enjoyed my visit and felt welcome. I know Holy Family will offer me a better high school experience and prepare me well for my future.”
Tuition assistance and a limited number of transfer grants are still available.
