School Reviews

We are extremely happy with Holy Cross Catholic school. As the parent of a sixth grade student we appreciate the low student:teacher ratio, the individualized academic plan for mathematics and the academic rigor of the curriculum. I am confident my student will be prepared academically, emotionally and spiritually for high school, college and a productive life. Thank you administrators and staff of Holy Cross!

Holy Cross is a warm, personalized school that truly cares about each student. They have many extras to offer families but the best thing they offer is a warm, caring learning environment.
