Holy Cross Catholic School provides a quality Catholic education for students in grades preschool-eight reaching out to a broad Christian community seeking a more personalized culture for meeting each, individual child's learning needs.
We welcome three- and four-year-olds to our preschool programs.
Programs vary to meet the needs of the individual child using blended learning technology and individual "student learning plans" build on each child's "learner profile" developed by the teacher in collaboration with the child and the parents.
Before and after school care for preschoolers is available if sufficient interest justified offering it financially..
Holy Cross also offers an all-day, five-day kindergarten program.
At Holy Cross Catholic School, we offer an education that meets the needs of the WHOLE child.
We lay a strong foundation in our faith, and build upon that foundation using quality academic programs welcoming Christ-focused students of other faiths.
We also offer various extra curricular activities for students to develop their sense of team work and relationship building. Our 3D printing competitions creating non-fossil fuel transportation creations, our First Robotics, our Children's Church Choir, our Boys and Girls Scouting, our sports programs and Christian service programs are supported by parents and other parishioners in our community.
Holy Cross Catholic School follows the standards set forth by the State of Michigan Department of Education, as well as those suggested by the Archdiocese of Detroit. Each student uses a google sheets platform to track mastery of each of the national, state, and archdiocese learning expectations.
The teachers also monitor curricula by creating curriculum maps. Teachers use Google Classroom and the menu of apps that complement Classroom to share curriculum progress with students and with parents in an on-going communication.
Our curriculum focuses on both the academic and faith formation of our students. The core beliefs of the Catholic Church drive the consistency of a Faith-Based education while also fostering the development of individual conscience and ecumenical outreach to diversity.
Holy Cross Catholic School believes in the educational mission of the Church and the Archdiocese of Detroit as defined by the Catholic Bishops "to impart Christ's message, to build community and to serve as we are called.".

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!
