Holy Spirit Catholic School offers a strong academic environment where basic Christian values as well as Catholic Doctrine are taught daily. Self-respect, respect for others, thankfulness, courage, honesty, perseverance, and diligence are just a few of the virtues that students learn and live.

Students develop good study habits and self-discipline. Personal attention from teachers allows students to try new skills, accept challenges, express themselves, and gain confidence. Personal pride fostered through faith in God provides students with strong concepts of dignity and self-worth. Catholic values are celebrated in religion classes, liturgy and service to the community.

Holy Spirit Catholic School has an excellent reputation for preparing students academically and religiously for the future. The school is blessed with a generous community of family, friends, teachers and staff who unselfishly give their time, talents, and treasures to support and nurture the students of the school.
