Since 1993, Holy Family Academy has been providing students with a Catholic, faith-based education in the central Willamette Valley. What began as a school with five families and 11 students in a single classroom has since grown to 36 families and nearly 80 students. We have been at the current Parkersville location since 1994, and due to school growth we have added a modular, chapel, and expanded the parking lot. We have also remodeled the playground twice, redone the septic field, remodeled the basement interior multiple times, and engaged in a host of other projects to accommodate our school’s growth.
Though Holy Family Academy’s growth has been a blessing, we have outgrown our current facilities yet again. School and community events such as Grandparents Day, school plays, May crowning, and graduation have always been foundational parts of our school life. Unfortunately, our current buildings are simply too small to effectively host our school community, and many of these events have had to be cancelled, reduced, or split into separate days. We are also straining our classroom capacity due to our increased enrollment, which is set to increase again this year.
Fortunately, the school was approached by a cornerstone donor whose vision is to build a multi-purpose auditorium on site. This building would completely transform Holy Family Academy’s ability to serve its students and families. The possibilities of a project like this are endless, but at a minimum, it would ease the daily burden on classrooms, while also providing us a space where we could finally gather for community events with ALL of our families, students, friends, and benefactors. This building could also provide us a cafeteria, gym space, an effective kitchen, lights and a stage to support our arts and music curriculum—there is so much potential here to transform Holy Family forever!
We turn to you, our generous benefactors, to help us make this dream a reality. We miss being able to include everyone in our school plays and events, and we want to have the ability once more to host open gyms and community events for our families. Please prayerfully consider participating in our capital campaign as we launch this project. Any amount helps, and will be gratefully received. You are in our prayers, as always, and thank you for your continued support of Holy Family Academy.
