Holy Cross has been our school for the past 11 years and counting. Our three children have been provided with an excellent, first-class education in an outstanding Catholic and loving environment.

All my children and grandchildren who live in Dover, have been given the opportunity to grow into Agents of Change in all their endeavors because of Holy Cross School. They are the people they are today because of the caring, professional staff and our clergy. A great place to live, learn and love!
