School Notes

  • Moreau Catholic is dedicated to the legacy and values of the Congregation of Holy Cross and its founder Blessed Basil Moreau. We are a college-preparatory school committed to outstanding achievement. As a community of faith, we prepare our students through academic, social and spiritual learning experiences that form and transform them as they become responsible citizens of our global community.
  • The fulfillment of our mission as Holy Cross educators is facilitated through the partnership between the family and school community. We believe this partnership is given meaning through the legacy and values established by Blessed Basil Moreau. His vision lies at the core of our school`s mission, as we focus on four pillars: Building Respect, Educating Hearts and Minds, Being Family, and Bringing Hope.
  • As a leader in bioprinting curriculum integration, we have developed inventive educational applications for biotechnology, bioengineering and green engineering. Our Science Innovation Lab offers zSpace technology featuring virtual holographic technology in a student-centered learning environment. In our Design Studio, students apply scientific principles in an environment that promotes risk-taking and invention. Students design their Holy Cross Social Justice Senior Capstone projects in our new Incubator Space by identifying needs in the world they are passionate about, exploring the tools for transformation, inventing new solutions reflective of their transformational high school experience and then presenting their findings in a TEDx talk at our school. This new space is an extension of our television, film, and sound studios and includes on-site technology as well as "start-up" tools such as 360-degree cameras for producing original virtual reality films.
  • In partnership with Summit Learning and the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative, we have implemented accelerated personalized learning programs to support the unique learning styles and skills of our students.
