Report cards will be sent home next Thursday (November 12th). Our in-person students will bring their report cards home. Our HVA students will receive their cards in the US Mail. It is very important that you sit down with your student to review grades and citizenship. We are always so proud of our students that do well academically; however, we also want to honor good citizenship. Beyond the school and college years, our Huskies need to be productive members of society and it all begins within the walls of Holly Academy. Thank you for your support over the past term. Character defines us!

Elementary HVA students have transitioned to Google Classroom. Virtual students must submit their work through Google Classroom. All assignments are expected to be uploaded through Google Classroom. Teachers will not accept work that is emailed to the teacher.


In addition to the Google Classroom, teachers in the building are videoing their lessons and posting them in Google Classroom. We are asking our HVA families for their patience when looking for videos as they are being recorded while teachers are teaching in person and may be posted at any time during the day. Students should not be completing work prior to watching the instructional videos.


Young 5’s through 2nd grade HVA families,

If you are receiving paper copies for your student to complete, they must be returned each week. It is incredibly important that our teachers are able to enter grades to make sure our families have the most current grade information.

The Holly Academy Education Foundation (HAEF) is pleased to continue offering engraved commemorative brick pavers to our school community. Brick pavers are an important contribution because they are a small monument of memorabilia left for future generations to come. These pavers are the perfect way to honor individuals, friends, groups, clubs or businesses. All proceeds go directly to support HAEF as it works to expand educational opportunities for Holly Academy students.
