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 1998 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.


The theme for the 2019-2020 school year is Raising Saints and Scholars. Each month we will focus on the life of a saint and try to follow his or her example on how to live a holy life, one holy moment at a time. Check out our Theme tab under Home to see what saints will be highlighted this school year.

***************GREAT NEWS****************

It is my great pleasure to announce that Holy Family School was a recipient of a 2019 Diocesan Parish Annual Appeal Service Grant for the 2019-2020 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.
