Admission Process

Letter from Bishop Loverde- “Why you should send your child to Holy Family Catholic School”

We applaud your interest in a Catholic education for your child. At Holy Family Catholic School we foster the spiritual, intellectual and civic development of the children in our care. For a tour of our facility and for an introduction to the application process please call Mrs. Maria Gonzalez at 703-670-3138. We welcome your inquiries.

Our application process includes a Student Application, Parent Interview Questionnaire, and Student Recommendation Form. Student applications will not be reviewed until the application fee and all required documentation have been received in the Admissions Office.

In addition to the above mentioned forms, all students are interviewed by the Principal.

Applications received after March will be part of a rolling admissions process. Acceptances are made through the beginning of the school year as space is available.

Additional information regarding Holy Family Catholic School can be found on the Admissions Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page of the website.

Catholic Schools administered under the authority of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington comply with those constitutional and statutory provisions, and provide equal opportunity to all qualified employees and applications for employment, as may be required of and specifically applicable to the schools, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, age, marital status, disability, national origin or citizenship in the administration of their educational, personnel, admissions, financial aid, athletic and other school administered programs.

The Diocese reserves the right, however, to determine whether and under what circumstances priority should be given to Catholics for certain employment positions. In addition, for Catholic employees, conformance with religious tenets of the Catholic faith is a condition of employment, and all employees may be prohibited from performing, teaching or advocating in the workplace any practices or doctrines which are inconsistent with religious tenets of the Catholic faith. Consistent with the foregoing, it is the policy and practice of the Diocese of Arlington and the parish to provide equal opportunity in employment, promotions, wages, benefits, and all other privileges, terms and conditions of employment.

 NON-DISCRIMINATION CLAUSE

Catholic Schools, administered under the authority of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, comply with those constitutional and statutory provisions, as may be specifically applicable to the schools, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, age, marital status, disability, national origin or citizenship in the administration of their educational, personnel, admissions, financial aid, athletic and other school administered programs.

This policy does not preclude the existence of single sex schools, nor does it conflict with the priority given to Catholics for admission as students. This policy also does not preclude the ability of the school to undertake and/or enforce appropriate actions with respect to students who advocate on school property or at school functions any practices or doctrines which are inconsistent with the religious tenets of the Catholic faith
