Huron Valley Catholic School 5

The school you chose for your children is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. We thank God everyday that we chose Huron Valley Catholic School for our 4 children. For us, we needed a school that was not only strong academically, but also a strong community. We wanted our children's classmates, their teammates, their reading buddies and their friends at school to have families that share similar beliefs that our family does. Yes, You need a school strong in academics. Which is HVCS is. Yes, a school that inspires our children to want to learn is important. And HVCS does this from pre-k through 8th grade. The principal and teachers must be top-notch. They must be professional, respectful and have integrity. But they must be loving and kind too because they have our children 7 plus hours a day. The teachers and principal at HVCS love our children like their own. Praying with and for them daily. Encouraging the children, challenging them, sharing with them their faith and their relationship with Jesus Christ. Its amazing to see so many alumni now sending their children to HVCS, it is a testimony to the amazing education and formation they received 20 plus years ago and now they are entrusting their children to some of the same inspiring and Christ-Centered teachers they were taught by. HVCS truly is a community. We are so thankful that our children spend their days with these amazing teachers, classmates and families. HVCS will not disappoint.

Huron Valley Catholic is known for its academic excellence, emphasis on faith and character formation, and authentic catholic environment. The principal, teachers, support staff, students, families, priests, and alumni make up an amazingly unique community. Our four children are thriving at HVCS and love going there! My husband and I are both alumni and remain friends with several former classmates. The friendships made at Huron Valley, formed in an environment of faith, respect, compassion and joy - these are friendships that last a lifetime.
