Holy Name of Jesus School

Growing together in faith, we foster love and reverence for God and for every human being. Rooted in Christ, and as his disciples, we strive to provide a dynamic Catholic atmosphere in which academic excellence can flourish in a safe and
nurturing environment.
Reflecting the teachings and actions of
Christ through the Catholic Church, we instill a desire to know, to love, and to serve God and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
