Middle School

At Holy Name School, our middle school students grow as responsible students and learn to be problem solvers in the 21st century. Our program helps prepare students for high school by helping them to be disciplined and organized. Through our rigorous academic program, our students learn to work independently and collaboratively. Our middle school students rotate classes throughout the day.
