Sixty percent of the Holy Family Students are Catholic, and of those, the majority claim the Cathedral as their home parish. The Cathedral and school work together to prepare our students to be leaders in the Catholic Church. Students learn about their faith through daily religion class, they plan and participate in weekly Mass, and they are involved in community service projects. The entire Holy Family Cathedral School community takes serious the call to model their faith. Our students are encouraged to apply Christian principles to their own daily decision making and to be active participants in both the Church and the community.READ MORE
Holy Family achieves academic excellence by emphasizing traditional core skills and faith formation at levels that exceed national standards. Our academic curriculum is approved by the Diocese of Tulsa and rooted in Catholic values. Faculty and school administration evaluate the curriculum on an ongoing basis. Holy Family strives to maintain a 15:1 student-to-teacher ratio. Our small class sizes allow for an individualized approach that is integral to our students' success. Teachers and school administration make it a priority to individualize instruction so that every student is challenged to high standards of academic excellence that meet their personal learning needs. Our downtown location allows our students to have access to diverse cultural experiences offered by an urban setting, thus providing our students many opportunities to learn through "hands-on" experiences and exploration.
Holy Family students in grades 5-8 participate in the Diocesan Middle School Athletic Association (DMSAA) sports league for volleyball, basketball, and track. Boys can participate in Comet football organized through Bishop Kelley High School. Students in grades kindergarten through eighth have opportunities to participate in cross country, and a variety of other sports through the parks league.READ MORE
School-sponsored activities challenge our students to apply their academic abilities in authentic learning tasks. These activities show our students how to make classroom learning applicable to the real world. Students share their knowledge of curriculum through participation in MathCounts, Academic Bowl, local and regional spelling and geography bees, and Lego League Robotics. Our on-site ballet, Spring Arts Festival, Spanish, technology, and enrichment programs allow all students to excel and to discover their God-given talents. We are unique among Catholic schools as we are the only Diocesan school to offer a band program.
