Grades Taught

Pre-Kindergarten - Grade 6 (English)


Nestled in the beautiful neighbourhood of Sturgeon Heights in St. Albert, Holy Family Catholic School has become known for its caring and thoughtful students and staff. Servicing students from Early Education to Grade 6, Holy Family offers students many educational choices, including a Recreational Academy and a multitude of other options, all with a faith-filled focus in Catholic education.



At Holy Family Catholic School, it is common to hear visitors comment on how warm and welcoming it feels when they enter our school. We are very proud of this accomplishment! Parents and staff of Holy Family Catholic School form a cohesive and supportive community for our learners. We see this through the willingness of our learners to take risks in becoming all that they can be in their rigorous academic program, in their relationships, in their extracurricular activities, or in their performances. We believe our learners experience success when they exhibit personal growth--intellectually, physically, spiritually, emotionally; when they feel safe and cared for when they look forward to returning to school the next day, and when they experience God in their relationships with others.

HFCS has developed a reputation for excellence through its unique features:

  • Recreation Academy: Students in the program will experience a wide variety of activities and sports each week, developing a clear sense of physical literacy and enjoyment of activities.
  • Option courses are also offered to our students in grades 4-6, such as Coding, Dance, Drama, Art, and Active Me!
  • Busing is available for all St. Albert students who wish to access our successful and engaging educational programs.
  • We provide, for St. Albert families, a supportive program for pre-school aged children with special needs, integrated with community children as positive role models, supported by trans-disciplinary teams comprising certified teachers with teacher assistants and therapists
