Holy Cross Academy

  • We, the educational community of Our Lady of Providence, embrace the mission of creating and sustaining a learning environment where: God is truly first; decisions are guided by gospel values; individual needs, talents, and contributions are respected; strategies for life-long learning are acquired; and growth is cherished and celebrated.
  • Our Lady of Providence School Community is dedicated to helping students develop and maintain the self-confidence and spirituality to meet the challenges of life.
  • We believe that our faith is inseparably intertwined with the diligent and thorough pursuit of academic excellence, enabling our students to solve problems, dream dreams, achieve success, and grow in wisdom and grace to reach their fullest potential.
  • We support parents as the first teachers and foremost catechists of their children.
  • As teachers, we amplify these lessons through word and example.
  • In addition, we challenge these same children to grow as self-teachers, life-long learners, and proclaimers of the gospel.
  • Indeed, we recognize that our entire parish community, in the generosity and witness of its members, is the wide classroom in which these lessons come to be learned.
