School Information

The first Catholic Grade School opened in Hannibal, Missouri in 1865. A short time later, in 1871, St. Joseph Academy, a girl’s high school was in operation. Two parishes were in existence in Hannibal, both having a Catholic elementary school. One of the parish schools was Blessed Sacrament located at 2100 Broadway. The other was St. Mary-Immaculate Conception School, located in the same building with the newly built (1925) McCooey High School, at 1113 Broadway. Blessed Sacrament parish and school merged with St. Mary parish and school to form the present parish and school known as Holy Family.
McCooey High School was closed in 1965. That building became the sole elementary school building for grades Kindergarten through Eight. In 1986, the Holy Family School Board voted to discontinue the Junior High (7th and 8th grades), and began a pre-kindergarten through grade six education system.
After many attempts to thoroughly study the feasibility of reinstating the 7th and 8th grades, the 1994-95 School Board voted to open Holy Family School to seventh graders in August 1995 and to eighth graders in August of 1996.
There are approximately 105 families with children in grades pre-kindergarten through 8th grade with a total enrollment of approximately 180 students. Holy Family parishioners have indicated a great appreciation of Catholic education and they value their Christian heritage.
Holy Family School meets the standards that are required by the Diocese of Jefferson City. Each standard builds and reflects the school’s educational mission and philosophy. Holy Family School personnel plan for a future based on pursuit of academic excellence and Faith development that enhances and enriches the spiritual dimension of each student and faculty member of Holy Family of Hannibal.
With positive parental involvement and continued financial support and encouragement from the pastor, school staff and other members of the parish, the people of Holy Family Parish look forward to meeting our goals and expectations now and through years to come.
