Military Families

Holy Spirit School welcomes and supports our military students and their families who are being stationed at military facilities throughout the Washington, D.C. area, including: Fort Belvoir, the Pentagon, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, the U.S. Coast Guard Station, Fort Myer, Andrews Air Force Base, and the White House Military Office.

We understand the unique needs of our military community and work with our families to ensure a smooth transition for students and their families. Our school registrar serves as the point of contact and will assist with the application process, while our school counselor is available to both students and their families during their school transition.

Additionally, we utilize a Sponsor Program for new families and work to set up new military families with established military families within our community.

We invite our Military Community, along with First Responders, to an annual Veteran’s Day Ceremony, and have a Hero Wall that is sponsored and organized by our National Junior Honor Society where students can honor the Military Heroes, along with the First Responder Heroes, in their lives.

Holy Spirit School and community honors all those who serve and protect our Nation.
