Holy Spirit Catholic School – Faculty, Staff and Parish Family – is dedicated to providing excellence in education centered on the teachings of the Catholic faith.
Holy Spirit Catholic School began as a school for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in 1965 in the Holy Spirit Catholic Church parish hall initially staffed by Benedictine Sisters. In 1966 the present school building was dedicated and grades 1st through 5th were added. The Kindergarten class was added in 1974.
Holy Spirit Catholic School strives to educate the whole child. It is important to teach to the intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual development of the child. Holy Spirit Catholic School uses the curriculum guidelines of the Department of Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of San Antonio along with the Texas State Standards as its main source for determining the course of instruction. To accomplish these goals, teachers will use textbooks, workbooks, group projects, and other outside resources as necessary to assure mastery of these objectives. Special attention is given to developing age and skill appropriate teaching practices to meet the needs of all students. All students receive instruction in the core courses of religion, math, English, literature, science and social studies as prescribed by the TCCED Bell to Bell schedule. Students will also receive instruction in the specialty subjects of music, art, physical education, computer science, and Spanish. Information on Archdiocesan Curriculum can be found on the Archdiocesan website at www.sacatholicschools.org.
Holy Spirit Catholic School is fully accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference Educational Department (TCCED), the Texas Education Agency (TEA), and is a member of the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA). All teachers at Holy Spirit Catholic School have a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree, have been certified to teach in the State of Texas, or have agreed to complete the requirements as set by TCCED.
