Welcome and Thank You for Visiting Our Holy Ghost Website!
On behalf of the community of Holy Ghost Catholic School, I extend a warm welcome to you and your family. At Holy Ghost you will find a community of families who value Catholic education and a dedicated staff that promotes each child’s academic excellence, artistic expression, physical fitness and spiritual development within our caring, Christian environment.
In 2009 Holy Ghost Catholic School became the first Catholic school in New Mexico to earn the U. S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School of Excellence recognition. A school-wide commitment to “Academic Excellence” encourages continuous improvement by staff and students to set the stage for this prestigious national award.
You will find that your child’s teachers are remarkable; they are dedicated to creating a Christian school community in which children can grow and flourish as members of the Body of Christ. Each day begins with student-led prayer and a call to “be a community of God, inspired by the Spirit, and walking in the footsteps of Jesus.” In partnership with parents, we provide a learning environment that ensures that all students are successful.
A commitment to service is a hallmark of our students. Beginning in kindergarten, our students begin “to learn to serve others as Jesus did” by serving at home. Our older students serve others within the school, parishes and greater Albuquerque area. Over the past nine years, our students have performed an average of over 7,000 hours of service annually in their homes, school, parishes, and throughout Albuquerque. In addition, each year several students earn the national Presidential Service Award. Our Service Learning Program was recognized as “Best in Class” by New Mexico Quality Education Awards Program in 2008 and by Albuquerque Interfaith Power and Light with a SEEDS award in 2014.
At Holy Ghost you will also find many opportunities for your child to develop his/her interests, skills and talents. Our students are involved in Band, Orchestra, Chess Club, Lego Club, Choir, Running Club, Magic Club, and Service in the Spirit Club and play volleyball, vasketball, soccer, flag football, track and field, and softball on our teams.
We invite you to visit Holy Ghost Catholic School during our monthly Open House to take a tour of the school. If Open House dates are not convenient for you, please call the school and we are happy to schedule a tour that meets your schedule. We are here to serve you and your family.
May God bless you and your family,
