Holy Cross School
Holy Cross School endeavors to motivate, guide and instruct children in beliefs, practices and values of the Catholic Christian community, integrated with high standards of academic excellence. Holy Cross provides a Catholic Christian education.
We emphasize the harmonious development of the child and all of his/her talents and abilities.
Recognizing parents as the primary educators, the teachers, as facilitators of learning, seek to provide experiences that will develop the values, attitudes, and habits necessary for each child to eventually become an intelligent, cultured articulate, and socially aware Catholic citizen, who will contribute to the faith community and the world society.
