Holley Central School District has a pre-K-12 student population of 1,047. Children attend school on a single, central campus. Middle school and high school students share one building (grades 7-12) and the district office shares a building with the single elementary school (PreK-grade 6).
HCSD is the central site of activities for the community. As such, the community has supported extensive renovations and upgrades of district facilities over the past decade, including construction of a transportation facility and an all-weather track and stadium facility in 2014. A new capital improvement project was approved in 2022. It is estimated to begin in spring 2024 and last through fall of 2025 with lots of highly anticipated updates. It will prioritize safety by building new secure entrances at the Elementary School and Middle/High School. Changes to look forward to for athletics include new bleachers, scoreboard, lights and a new parking lot at The Woodlands soccer field, and the track will be resurfaced in Hawk Stadium.
The Holley Central School District enjoys the best of both worlds. Located in Upstate New York near the shores of Lake Ontario, Holley is a family-oriented community of rich farmland and country living between New York’s second and third largest cities – Buffalo and Rochester. The district encompasses the western edge of Monroe County, the eastern edge of Orleans County, the Village of Holley and the towns of Murray and Clarendon. The area offers eight colleges and universities within 50 miles of Holley, including The College at Brockport, the University of Rochester, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the University at Buffalo.
Along the historic Erie Canal and in the county of Orleans, the Holley area is noted for its bountiful crops of apples, peaches, pears, grapes, berries and a wide variety of vegetables. Roadside markets and antique shops can be found at every turn. The Village of Holley is home to Holley Canal Falls, a hidden gem located in the Holley Canal Park. Holley is a tight-knit community, and for over 50 years, residents have come together every Flag Day to watch Holley students parade into the town square, flags in hand, and hear the elementary band and chorus perform. Students and staff do not hesitate to organize community-focused projects throughout the school year, whether its volunteering at the community center, participating in an annual Clean Sweep, honoring local veterans at the elementary school's annual Veteran's Day Assembly, hosting a Senior Citizen Breakfast, caroling and performing at the Village Tree Lighting during the holidays and much more.
