Holy Cross High School
- The Congregation of Holy Cross has established schools, as a continuation of the legacy of the Reverend Basil Anthony Moreau, to cultivate minds and hearts and to serve the needs of the Church and the World.
- Holy Cross schools offer educational programs to a diverse group of students, fostering the gifts of those with whom and for whom we work.
- We teach the Catholic faith; we encourage the pursuit of academic excellence; we nurture a commitment to integral growth by focusing on Christian values and the intellectual, creative, social and physical development of those we serve.
- We spur those whom we serve to challenge prejudice, as well as unjust networks of power and privilege.
- Holy Cross sponsored schools exist to promote the legacy and vision of Father Moreau by developing leaders among the People of God for the good of the Church and society.
