Holy Cross High School Photo #1 - Be A Scholar, Be A Leader, Be Holy Cross
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.
