My grandsons attend Holy Cross School & I couldn`t be more impressed with the caliber of the education they are receiving. The enthusiasm and dedication of the teachers is incredible. My two grandsons couldn`t be any more different from eachother and all their educational and social needs are being met. Hooray for Holy Cross School.

The quality of the education at Holy Cross School is excellent. We have 1 child in 1st grade. Having an art club, piano lessons and Lego Club as some of the extracurricular activities is wonderful.
