- Holy Cross High School, a Catholic college preparatory school in Queens, New York, educates the hearts and minds of young people following the educational and spiritual vision of Blessed Father Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross.
- Holy Cross embraces students who reflect social and economic diversity. The school strives to instill within each student a desire to identify and fully develop God-given talents while pursuing excellence in all endeavors. Holy Cross` varied academic programs and activities nurture and promote spiritual, intellectual, creative, social and psychological growth and development.
- As Blessed Father Basil Moreau wrote in 1856, "Education is the art of helping young people to completeness."
- Holy Cross High School, sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross, demonstrates and teaches in the Catholic tradition. We believe this requires each person to recognize the need for the following: a spirituality centered in Christ; a developed intellect; emotional, physical and social maturity; and an understanding of the Christian truth of each person`s developing relationship to other persons. The faculty, staff, administration, and Board of Directors are dedicated to the spiritual development of young people who are moral, courageous, and of service to others.
- We recognize that a student`s education and development are reinforced by active participation in the school, the community, and places of worship. Civic and moral responsibility are exemplified and promoted.The curriculum of Holy Cross High School is designed to stimulate interest, intellectual curiosity, and creativity. We strive to develop each student`s innate capacity for independent decision making, good judgment, and respect for others. It is through the integration of these spiritual and human potentials that a student will be capable of enjoying, contributing to and appreciating life and embracing the eternal God.
- Our philosophy is rooted in the vision of our founder, Blessed Basil Moreau, and in the two hundred year old tradition of the Congregation of Holy Cross. We are part of network of Holy Cross education in the United States which includes twenty-two secondary and post-secondary academic institutions. Whether you find yourself on the campus of the University of Notre Dame or in the hallways of Holy Cross High School, Flushing, the characteristics of a Holy Cross education remain the same.
