Welcome to Holy Infant


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Holy Infant Catholic School. I hope your visit to our website will provide you with the information you seek, an understanding of our mission, and a snapshot of our daily activities.  Our motto, “Educating for Life’s Journey,” and our core values (Teaching Minds, Touching Hearts, Training Leaders, Treasuring Tradition, and Transforming Lives) reflect the comprehensive education we endeavor to provide your son or daughter at Holy Infant.

As a lifetime member of the parish, as well as an alumna of Holy Infant School, I am dedicated to serve the school community now and into the distant future.  I look forward to assisting teachers with the education, spiritual growth, and leadership of all students. 

Partnering with parents, we challenge students to engage in learning that will prepare them to assume their successful place in the twenty-first century.  To ensure that each student has complete access to innovative tools, technology is incorporated into classroom instruction at all levels.  SmartboardsTM or MimioTeachTM interactive whiteboards are used in nearly every classroom.  Each classroom has access to iPadsTM, and each junior high student is provided with a ChromebookTM laptop computer. In this ever-changing world, we continue to maintain high standards and excellence in education.   

Holy Infant Catholic School is a welcoming place where each family is valued and respected.  I am proud to be a member and leader of this school community.  We welcome you as “companions on the journey.” We ask for God’s blessing as we continue our tradition of excellence in preparing our youth for the journey of a lifetime.

Our Mission

Holy Infant Catholic School, building on a foundation of academic excellence, in partnership with parents and the parish community, strives to teach as Jesus did - in faith, with love and respect, helping each child to achieve his or her full spiritual and academic potential.

Our History

Our school was founded by Reverend Robert J. Schwegel and the four founding Sisters of Mercy of Drogheda, County Meath, Ireland in 1956.  From then on, the Irish Sisters of Mercy have instilled Irish customs to the school & parish.
