School Advisory Board

The purpose of the School Advisory Board is to assist the Pastor and Principal in an advisory capacity, and to recommend policies or practices to the Pastor and Principal for their consideration. The Board is not responsible for the administration of HFCA, and has no power to take action on behalf of the School or Parish. Primary responsibilities include strategic planning and budgeting.


The School Advisory Board consists of up to 10 members appointed by the Pastor and Principal.  Members consist of a cross-section of Academy parents, parishioners and community members who have the talent, expertise, and access to resources needed to assist the Pastor and Principal in governing and promoting HFCA.  In particular, the Pastor and Principal look for individuals with experience in marketing, finance, technology, law, higher education, and development to serve on our Board.

Principal: Mrs. Kate O’ Brien  (
