Holy Family School enjoys a long tradition of excellence in the arts built not only on instruction in both elementary and middle school but also on strong individual participation.
Our program encourages creativity and self-expression by our students no matter the range of talent in order to be enjoyed and appreciated throughout their lives. In addition to those specific areas listed below Holy Family students enjoy trips to the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown Symphony and other local cultural art venues.
Kindergarten to eighth grade experiences music class weekly. Once in fourth grade recorders are introduced and a performance is given at the school Christmas Concert and again at the Spring Concert.
In fifth through eighth grade our students may participate in band. Students begin the year with group instruction on the instrument of their choice and interest. Students learn to focus on goals and achievement in order to develop self-discipline. Emphasis is on fundamental skill development related to counting, music reading, and overall production of tone. Private instruction is encouraged.
Holy Family Youth Choir is an integral part of both the school and parish. The choir receives direction from an award winning leadership and participates in school and parish as well as diocesan events.
Beginning in our Early Childhood Program through eighth grade, students are given many opportunities to explore their creativities and express their thoughts and feelings through artistic media. With each project our students experience a variety of creative processes while at the same time gain an appreciation of the history and culture of art.
Foreign Language Enrichment
The Italian Enrichment Program allows our students to gain appreciation for the richness and beauty around them in the global world in which we live. Students learn vocabulary, phrases, songs, geography, traditions and culture. Youngstown State University and the National Italian American Foundation help sponsor this program.
