July 1: Applications for Enrollment Accepted
TBD: Shadow Visit Season
Due to current CDC guidelines, shadow visits are currently suspended. However, we have several ways to learn more about Holy Family. If and when we can resume shadow visits this year, we will notify all families in our database and post a notice here.
Students may take advantage of our Shadow Program, offering them the opportunity to visit Holy Family for an entire school day. Guests are paired with a student with similar interests and they can experience a typical day in our school. Parents are required to call in advance to schedule a shadow day for their child.
Fall 2020: Fire Family Visits
Join us for a Fire Family Visit, a small group information session. Four families with a maximum of four family members present will have the opportunity to tour the school and learn more about our school, scholarships, and tuition assistance.

For students with an enrollment application on file there is no charge. All other students will be charged a $25 fee for the Placement Exam, and students should plan on arriving by 7:50 am. Students do not need calculators for this exam. An additional Math placement test is given at the end of May for final placement assessment for math courses beyond Algebra1. http://myschool.hfchs.org/placetestregistration.php
