The Congregation of Holy Cross has established schools, as a continuation of the legacy of Blessed Father Basil Anthony Moreau, to cultivate minds and hearts and to serve the needs of the Church and the world.
Holy Cross schools offer educational programs to a diverse group of students fostering the gifts of those with whom and for whom we work.
We teach the Catholic faith; we encourage the pursuit of academic excellence; we nurture a commitment to integral growth by focusing on Christian values and the intellectual, creative, social and physical development of those we serve.
