Why Should I Choose Holy Angels Regional School for my Child?

It’s perfectly natural for parents to ask this question.  After all, the choice of where your child attends school is surely one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make as a parent.    Often, parents’ first question is: how much will it cost? Will I be able to afford it? Actually, that should be parents’ last question. When it comes to our kids, and their education, the real question is:  “Can I afford not to?”

So, here are a few points to ponder as you make that decision.    

We acknowledge that parents are the primary educators of their children. That’s why we promise to keep you informed about your child’s progress, any problems that he or she may be having, and how your child likes to learn. In addition, we expect that you will be involved in your child’s education all through his / her school career.  There are plenty of activities that your child will want to involve you in, from helping with homework to volunteering at school in whatever capacity you are able. That way, we demonstrate to your child that we are partners in your awesome responsibility to be his or her primary educator.    

We hold students to high standards. Holy Angels Regional teachers are professionally prepared and properly certified to meet the standards of every kind of school.  But because we acknowledge that parents want the very best for their children, we don’t hesitate to demand the best from your child. Homework, projects, and even tests are rigorous in our school. This is an act of faith in your child: a belief that your child can reach his or her highest potential. The result is that our students are well prepared for their next academic challenge-high school.    

But even more important, our teachers acknowledge that their students are worthy of the highest expectations because you believe the very same thing.  

Holy Angels Regional School is different where it counts. The very core of our Catholic school is the Gospel teaching of Jesus, and the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Central to the school day is prayer and the practice of “what would Jesus do.” Students have the opportunity to learn their faith and to live it.  Social justice is not only taught, it is lived, and our goal is to bring your child to an awareness of God’s love for him or her, as well as his or her obligation to live a moral life and work for justice for others.      

Holy Angels Regional School emphasizes what matters in school.  We don’t put a priority on sports, or other extra-curricular activities.  We believe that a solid, academic, value-laden education is more important than the “frills”.  You won’t find fads or social experiments going on in our schools. We have found a formula that works and we simply continue to refine that formula.  At Holy Angels Regional, we get results because we believe that the tried and true can be trusted. That doesn’t mean that we don’t have up-to-date facilities and teaching tools.  Our graduates are technologically literate, and they understand that computers and other technology are just means to learning; they are not the goal of learning.

We have been educating our community’s children for almost one hundred years. We employ administrators and teachers who are there for no other reason than to teach your child. We value your child as a unique, special individual who is more than a test score or a statistic.    

I encourage you to come and experience just what makes our school different. Schedule a tour and start your family’s journey with us now!

As we enter the Lenten season, our 2nd Graders were asked to reflect on what sins they want God to clean from their hearts and how they can try harder to make good choices! Here’s what they said:

Logan- I’m sorry for pushing my sister and I’m going to try to be kinder to her.

Vincent- I’m sorry for hurting my sisters, I want to try to be nicer to them.

Annabel- I know I shouldn’t fight with my brothers, we have to try harder to get along.

Noah- I’m sorry I hit my sister, I don’t want to hurt her so I shouldn’t do that.

Grant- Sometimes I don’t listen. I want to be more focused at school and when I play sports.

Faith B- I’m sorry for yelling at my sister, and I want to show better sportsmanship.

Cole- I’m fresh to my dad sometimes, I can make better choices.

Alexa- I want to control my anger better. One time I got really mad when I wanted something at the candy store. I want to work on calming down before I act.

Addison- I’m going to try harder to not fight with my sister and do my chores when I’m asked.

Jace- I’m going to try to listen better so I can make my mom happy.

Gianna- I’m sorry I gave my mom a hard time when I had to take my medicine. I’m going to just take it quickly and get it over with from now on.

Faith J- I’m going to try harder not to yell at my siblings and treat them how I want to be treated.

Jordyn- I push sometimes, but I know I need to use my words, not my hands.

Aiden- I’m going to listen to my mom better when she says it’s time to shut the TV and go to bed. I’m not going to hide the remote anymore.

Let’s all pray alongside our second graders this Lenten season!
