“We can state in a word the kind of teaching we wish to impart. We do not want our students to be ignorant of anything they should know. To this end, we shall avoid no sacrifice. We shall always place education side by side with instruction; the mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart. While we prepare useful citizens for society, we shall likewise do our utmost to prepare citizens for eternal life.”

- Blessed Basile Moreau
Founder, Congregation of Holy Cross

Dear Future Tiger Parents,

Holy Cross School has become a school of distinction not because we have built great buildings, but because we have built great men. Each day amazing things happen in the classroom and around campus because of our talented students and enthusiastic faculty. An unmatched facility and unparalleled technology support the unquenchable zeal of our school community.

We challenge our students without apology, because at the end of the day, when our students leave our campus, they leave as a better person. Our students are resilient and come from families who are unafraid of making extraordinary sacrifices. Our curriculum is innovative, putting more of an emphasis on cooperation, creativity and adaptability instead of rote memory. Our faculty is compassionate because for over 165 years we have emphasized the education of the Whole Man – Mind, Soul, Body, and Heart.

A Holy Cross man, the Whole Man, is treated as an individual – not as a number

Our admissions process looks at the individual applicant. While GPAs, conduct grades and standardized test scores are very important, it is equally important that your son truly wants to be a Holy Cross Tiger. We do not look for a certain number of students; we look for the right students.
