Holy Cross Lutheran Academy is a Christian private school located on three separate campuses; one in Lake Mary on our Church property offering Preschool.  Our Sanford Campus (5450 Holy Cross Ct.) offers Early Childhood starting with 1 year olds and also houses our elementary school through 4th grade.  We recently purchased an additional property at 100 Aero Lane in Sanford and have moved our 5th - 8th grade there.  Beginning in August 2015 we will start 9th grade with plans to go through 12th grade.  We incorporate Spanish, art, and music, throughout the curriculum, have sports teams and regular PE days/activities, and offer many extracurricular options, including team sports and cheerleading, and band.  All classrooms have upgraded technology and we've implemented a 1:1 learning program that offers all 6th - 8th graders a laptop computer to engage the digital generation.
