Holy Name of Jesus Catholic School
Mission Statement: "Holy Name of Jesus Catholic School, united by the Holy Eucharist, shepherds the whole child to live Gospel values, pursue academic excellence, and serve others."
HNJ Catholic School has been successfully educating children for over 50 years by providing students with a foundation of academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment. At HNJ, we've seen how the intellectual growth of our students has contributed to their academic success but moreover, they've acquired a deeper understanding of their place in the world through compassionate service and living by the tenets of our faith.
Our goal for the school is to continue to advance technologically as students embrace computers and tablets as their primary learning, research, and writing tools. But the importance of dedicated teachers remains steadfast. They inspire excellence in our students as they lead and live by the Christian values that they teach. Pope Francis spoke about teachers saying, "In order to educate you must go out of yourselves and be amidst the young, accompanying them in the stages of their growth, standing beside them." Our dedicated teachers do exactly that. It is our responsibility as a Catholic School to develop the whole person and nurture the individual so every child can grow in his/her spirituality, and emotional and intellectual capacity.
HNJ students continually perform well above the national average on the Terra Nova Assessment in core subject areas. In addition, we excel in a variety of academic competitions including science, math, writing, and art. I am proud of our 8th grade student graduates and the responsible young men and women that they've become. They are well prepared for the rigors of high school.
We look forward to the school year and the positive changes that it will bring. Our students will experience educational field trips, a variety of electives and enrichment courses to develop new skills. May God bless our special school community and every child who our families entrust to our loving care.
