A Letter from the Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I wanted to write a short note of thanks to everyone who attended our Strategic Planning meeting.  Even with the heavy rains, it didn’t keep the crowd away.  I was proud to see the turnout of parents, alumni, parishioners, Board members and faculty in the audience, it was a perfect mix.  Brother Ralph was also impressed.

As some of you know or have just learned, Strategic Planning is a necessary step for our academy’s future growth. It’s a stepping stone for accreditation and turning dreams into reality for our students and all of HFCA’s future students.  Coming together like we did on May 30th, is a testament to our school and the people in it.  To see everyone who came to listen, share ideas and be active participants in this endeavor was for me a wonderful thing to experience.

 If you were unable to make this meeting, there may still be opportunities to join the different committees.  If you are interested please feel free to call the school at 718-969-2124.   

Thank you again for your time and involvement, as it will make a difference and ensure that Holy Family Catholic Academy will continue to thrive for years to come.


God Bless,


Miss. Mary C. Scheer
