Happy Valentine's Day! Each and every day you "share the love" with us by sending us your children. I would like to take this opportunity to "share the love" back. Holly Academy is a school of excellence due to our outstanding staff and students, but the foundation of HA lies in our families. You have made the choice to commit to HA, which comes with a commitment to academic rigor and high behavior expectations. From volunteering, to chaperoning, to sending in supplies, you consistently demonstrate your dedication to us. We are so very grateful for you! Enjoy this long weekend!

From the Board of Directors

We have an open trustee seat on our Board of Directors. The Board is looking for a community member (non-parent). If you know of anyone who would like to "give back" to education, being a Board member is the perfect fit. Our HA Board of Directors is the governing body for our school. The Board meets once per month (always on a Wednesday). Meetings begin at 5:30pm and generally last two hours.
