Holy Cross High School's mission is focused on setting high expectations for students; demanding everything students can give and accepting nothing less.
Our philosophy is that all students, despite varying ability, are capable of satisfying these high expectations given a personalized education, small class sizes, and a wide-ranging curriculum that meets needs at all academic levels.
For this reason, we have adopted the motto, “A size for all”, which symbolizes our efforts, through our diverse academic and co-curricular programs, to give students the opportunity to achieve academically, to excel athletically, and to participate in numerous clubs and organizations.
While Holy Cross High School is small in size, it is large enough to offer programs and services found at much larger schools.
Holy Cross District High School provides quality Catholic education for all of its students through the deeply rooted commitment of the Holy Cross school community to education, diversity, family, and religion.
