About Holy Family Catholic High School

Holy Family Catholic High School is a co-educational college-prep high school in the Lasallian Catholic tradition committed to helping young men and women realize their academic and spiritual potential. We educate students in grades nine through twelve, offering a robust extracurricular program. The school holds an accreditation from AdvancedED, a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site reviews of a variety of educational institutions and systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential.

Holy Family Catholic High School has welcomed international students for more than 20 years, but launched its full-year international program in the Spring of 2020. We have welcomed students from Australia, South Korea, Italy, and Spain.

OUR LOCATION | Minneapolis Suburb of Victoria | Carver County | Minnesota

Victoria is located approximately 20 minutes west of Minneapolis in Carver County, Minnesota. In July 2019, Money Magazine recognized Carver County as Minnesota’s most highly educated county. Surrounded by lakes and bordering the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and Three Rivers Park District’s Carver Park Reserve, Victoria has a rich history and is a thriving community. Residents enjoy the town’s quaint downtown, abundant parks, and family-friendly neighborhoods. It is conveniently located near large retail stores, world-class healthcare facilities, and a variety of entertainment venues.


Our students join us from nearby communities and even across the globe on F-1 study visas. They are highly engaged with more than 95% of our students participating in extra-curricular activities, making life-long friends along the way. We commit to making you part of our extended family. School and community involvement is central to our culture.

During each student’s high school journey, Holy Family provides a nurturing environment in which every student is respected, loved, and treated as family by staff and peers.


As a college preparatory school, we take great pride in our highly successful, personalized approach to guiding students and families through the college process. Our counselor to student ratio of 1:98 (compared to the Minnesota average of 1:793) allows counselors the time to work 1:1 with students, ensuring the journey to college is a comfortable and successful one. Our graduates attend some of the finest colleges and universities across the United States.

“We chose Holy Family because we wanted a smaller school where our kids were challenged while preparing for their futures.” – Greg and Kristin Waltz

International Student Director

Jorge Oconitrillo walked in the footsteps of those students whom we welcome from abroad, when he attended Bemidji State University, Bemidji, MN, and Concordia College in Moorhead, MN on an international student visa.
