Mission Statement

Holy Cross Catholic School, a ministry of Holy Cross Parish, educates and guides children in their spiritual, intellectual, and moral development.  We offer a strong academic program in an environment centered on the message of the Gospels and the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church.


Holy Cross School provides an academically challenging Catholic education. We welcome diversity in our school and value the unique gifts students and families contribute to our school community. We recognize parents as the primary educators of their children, and teachers as facilitators of learning. We integrate high academic standards with experiences that develop the values, attitudes, and habits necessary for our students to become intelligent, articulate, and socially responsible citizens who contribute to their family, faith, and world communities.
