The Indiana Department of Educations – IDOE – established the 25th percentile cut score for combined passing percentages of English/Language Arts and Mathematics as well as the percent of students passing both for all grades tested. In addition to meeting these criteria, all Four Star Schools must meet the 95 percent student participation rate.
The fact that Holy Family school met these high expectations is evidence of the hard work demonstrated daily by parents, staff and students.
OLPH and Providence, from the New Albany Deanery also made this list!

Here is the letter telling us of this great honor, from Glenda Ritz, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction.
Congratulations to our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students who participated in the Junior Division of the Indiana Academic Super Bowl April 27th in Seymour. In total, 225 teams competed at 14 Area Competition Sites throughout the state. Our team competed against 51 other schools in the Division 4 category.
The theme of this year’s competition was “The Glory that was Greece”. Our academic team competed in Math, English, Science, Social Studies and Interdisciplinary rounds.
Overall, our team did a phenomenal job. They spent many hours studying and learning extra material. We are very proud of their hard work!
Thank you to our parent coaches who volunteered many hours of preparation and working with this amazing team!
