Dear Friends, I want to personally thank you for visiting the website of one of our schools, Holy Family Catholic School and St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School. I am most grateful for your interest in seeking a faith-based education within our communities. As Catholic educators, we are committed to providing a school environment that is grounded in the Gospel message, enriched by our service to others, and driven by the mission of the school.
Our schools are located in northwest Austin, and are part of the Diocese of Austin. They serve a wide geographic area by offering exceptionally strong academic programs for students from PreK through the 12th grade. Two separate but adjoined campuses combine for a total of over 55 beautiful acres. The schools are independently administered by a local Principal, but share common governance with the President. As President, I seek to support each Principal in their effort to develop our schools, ensure our Catholic identity and plan strategically for the future. My office and staff focus primarily in the areas of institutional advancement, finance, facilities and strategic planning for both schools. We believe that there is strength in this somewhat unique governance model, by offering additional opportunities for professional collaboration and shared resources.
We welcome many new students each year in our schools, and I encourage prospective families to attend one of our planned gatherings offered by the Admission Offices. Participants will continue to learn more about the special nature of these school communities and the process for enrollment.
Again, thank you for your interest in our schools.
2018-2019 was a great year to be an Eagle. We began our year-long celebration of Savio’s ten years of "Forming Servant Leaders in the Image of Christ," and the momentum carried over into the rest of the year resulting in many achievements and milestones in faith, academics, leadership, and extra-curricular activities.
Mass, exposition, reconciliation services, and retreats continue to be a fundamental part of our faith formation at Savio. Service was a common thread for our students, and as of May, we have nine Savio alumni who have answered God’s call to a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. Academically, fourteen Savio students received National Merit recognition. Savio athletics rose to the occasion, excelling in a bigger, more challenging 6A district. Savio students also excelled in the fine and performing arts.
Savio’s milestones and accomplishments this year also included the 10th Annual Pi Day, the 6th Annual Cuts for Cancer, and the performances of Harvey and The Drowsy Chaperone. Savio’s Speech Team earned second at the TAPPS Academic Championship, our Iron Eagles Robotics team won State, and our Computer Science teams put together a string of first-place finishes in Lockheed-Martin’s Code Quest and the Texas Computer Science Education Association competitions. 2018-2019 was an amazing year! We look forward to an even more successful 2019-2020 school year and the second half of our year-long celebration of Savio’s ten years of forming servant leaders in the image of Christ.
Dr. Garcia, Principal
