Head Teacher Mrs. Johnson recently provided a statistic that sums up the quality of education delivered at Holy Cross: over 90% of our current students score above average for their grade level. This excellence, plus solid Christian values, is the culture of Holy Cross. Our small but growing school offers students all the fundamentals, plus a fully equipped modern computer lab & smart boards, outstanding music education (come see our Christmas program!), and staff certified in the Barton system, a method of identifying and instructing students with dyslexia. Last but not least, participation from what has to be one of Minnesota's most supportive small towns gives Holy Cross a true community feel. HC welcomes children and families of all faiths, and will work with any family to make Catholic education affordable.
