We made the choice to have all of our children enter into this private high school for many reasons. Safety, curriculum, size and ease of transport along with a variety of activities and sports for all. Although the facilities are aging, the programs were well balanced and we were able to budget for each of our 4 children. They each had issues with school, like any teen, but all really have loved what the school had to offer for them. Classes of ''07,''09, ''13, and soon to be ''17!

Mr. Guida (now principal) always has a smile on his face and is willing to help ALL students in anyway he possibly can. During my tenure at Holy Cross I passed the AP economics exam, the class he taught. My parents and I were ecstatic as this saved us thousands of dollars in college, how can you beat that? He is a wonderful teacher and I highly recommend him and the Holy Cross education. Currently I am employed full time in the economics field and a big thanks goes out to Mr. Guida!
