Description With the opening of the 2016 academic year, Holy Spirit School celebrates its fiftieth year of Inspiring Minds and Igniting Hearts and we are honored to continue the amazing traditions and service that the dedicated clergy, parishioners, faculty and staff who helped to first open the doors here instituted. The Holy Spirit Catholic Church itself was established on May 23, 1964 by His Excellency John Russell, Bishop of Richmond. The parish was formed by approximately 500 families. At the urging of the parishioners, the school was built and opened in 1966 with students in kindergarten and grade one. Holy Spirit School now educates about 400 students in prekindergarten through grade eight.

In June of 2007, a ground-breaking ceremony was held at the school, and ultimately a multi-million dollar wing was added to include an updated library, computer lab, art workshop, science lab, and expanded space for the vibrant Middle School. The new space for the Middle School allowed Holy Spirit the opportunity to further differentiate the program as a distinct entity within the greater school community. This included the institution of an elective program and the continued growth of the advanced math program to include geometry. A sense of community and program unity has grown with the use of advisories and the institution of field trips that are attended by the Middle School in its entirety.

The “Little Sparks” Prekindergarten program has grown leaps and bounds at Holy Spirit with the inclusion of a full-day prekindergarten option and dedicated classroom space for the prekindergarten and kindergarten Extended Day Program. Holy Spirit School has available a Morning Care Program in order to meet the needs of working parents. A newly added school chapel assists in meeting the spiritual needs of the entire community.

The academic needs of students continue to be enhanced with the installation of SmartBoard technology in each of the classrooms used by grades one through eight. Durin
