My son started at Holy Cross as a pre-K'er and is currently in Kindergarten. He has absolutely blossomed at the school. They encourage his sense of wonder and curiosity and he is gaining a fantastic academic foundation. We feel so lucky to be a part of the HC community and I'm so proud of the values my child is developing and thankful for the incredible partnership I have with the school in educating my child.
