The Holy Cross Tradition

For more than 168 years, Holy Cross School has served the New Orleans community as the premier college preparatory school for young men. Serving boys in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade, we have seen generations of students grow from “Boys to Men.”
We invite you to join in the brotherhood that is Holy Cross School. Crux Spes Unica "One Family United by the Cross, Our Only Hope."
“The Holy Cross Man” is our school code and is recited by students at the beginning of each school day. It’s a rich tradition that defines who we are and what Holy Cross School is all about.
“The Holy Cross Man is a refined gentleman who lives by Faith. Devoted to his soul's welfare, he reflects often on God. His daily actions are sanctified by prayer, the practice of virtue and manly piety. Since sanctity is his goal, he has a deep devotion to Our Lord, to Our Lady and to St. Joseph, patron of his school.
The Holy Cross Man is studious. He regards learning as a duty; intellectual perfection as an honor. He knows that his school is his training ground where he must mold himself into a useful man.
The Holy Cross Man is loyal to God and Country. Devotion to his school and his teachers is demonstrated by his cooperation, zeal and spirit. He is a friend of all because he is a member of the Mystical Body of Christ.
In a word, he is a man of faith and honesty, of strength of character through self-mastery, of respect for the Christian family and lawful authority, of leadership in the pursuit of the true, the good and the beautiful - that is the Holy Cross Man.”

Educator Spotlight: Dr. Joseph Murry

Dr. Murry's educational philosophy is one that focuses on the individual and bringing out the best in students. He believes students have to be challenged in order to grow. They have to experience a bit of discomfort in order to become the best of themselves. Through struggle, there comes learning.

Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Kara Jacobi

As a Holy Cross educator, I take on the responsibility of not only preparing my students for college coursework but of also helping to mold them into responsible, compassionate citizens. I love teaching literature because through literary texts, students are able to see the world through the eyes of others.
