At Holy Cross School, our educational philosophy is to develop the whole man: Mind and Heart, Body and Soul.

“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 Basil Moreau, Founder, Congregation of Holy Cross


A Holy Cross education focuses on challenging each student to reach his fullest potential and realize his own inner genius.

Our curriculum is innovative, putting an emphasis on cooperation, creativity, and adaptability. Our faculty members, many of whom are Holy Cross graduates, are committed to our mission of educating the whole man, and they treat each student as an individual, so they can help each young man realize his God-given gifts and talents.
