Holy Spirit School offers education for your child up through 6th grade.
The Holy Spirit School Faculty and staff share the conviction that every child can learn to lead a life of service. We carry out a great mission to serve God by building knowledge and character in our young people.
By teaching the Word of God, we prepare our students to follow a path of virtue, compassion, and sacrifice for the rest of their lives. And by insisting on high standards for academic achievement, Holy Spirit School has a competitive, yet friendly and fun-filled learning atmosphere.
“It takes a ‘family’ to raise a child.” The Holy Spirit “extended family” is comprised of pastors, administration, faculty, staff, parents, and volunteers. There are many opportunities for involvement in academics, special events, lunchroom, recesses and much more. Everyone is welcome!

Principal’s note: During the month of December we will focus on the virtue of service at Holy Spirit School. Service is at the very heart of the commitment we make to living the Gospel. I would like to thank all of our families that donated Thanksgiving food items for Feeding South Dakota. A total of 990 pounds of food was collected on Nov. 22nd for the families in our local community. Our Advent service project will be focused on helping those in need around the world with a project with Cross Catholic Outreach. Watch for information coming home during Advent.
Plans are currently underway for the SFCS All Schools Mass. The Mass will be held on Friday, February 2nd at 10:00 a.m. at the Elmen Center. On the campus of Augustana University. All of our Holy Spirit K-6 students will be attending this event. There will be no Preschool/PK Plus on this day. Please plan accordingly.
In the next few weeks a mailing will go out inviting parishioners across the city with school age children to consider a Sioux Falls Catholic Schools Education. Our Open House event for new families is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 25th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. In February we will begin registration for the 2018-19 school year. Do you have a neighbor, friend or relative that has school age children? Have you ever extended an invitation to them to check out our schools? I have found that one of our best marketing tools we have are our parents. Spread the good news!
