Holy Family School, as a part of the Catholic Diocese of Covington, has a strong tradition of Catholic Education in grades K-8, in East Covington. Holy Family was established in 1988 through the merger of Bishop Howard and St. Benedict Schools. It is attended by the parishes of St. Benedict, the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, and Our Savior, as well as children not affiliated with these parishes. We continue to be a part of A.C.U.E. (The Alliance of Catholic Urban Education) under the supervision of all parish pastors and the Diocesan Superintendent.


Holy Family School is Currently accepting Registrations for the 2021-22 school year for students in grades K-8. Contact the school office at 859-581-0290 for more information.

It is my great pleasure to announce that Holy Family School was a recipient of a 2020 Diocesan Parish Annual Appeal Service Grant for the 2020-2021 school year to be used for operating expenses.

Thank you to all who have contributed to the DPAA and to Bishop Foys and the DPAA committee for helping us in our mission to give all our students the opportunity to receive a Catholic faith-based education.
