Mission Statement

Holy Cross School provides an academically rich, faith-filled learning environment, thus ensuring a Catholic values-based education.  At Holy Cross we strive to convey a sense of justice, peace, compassion, and respect for all God's creation.

Vision

Our school’s vision is to be a community where the educational process is centered on the love of Christ and the development of the whole child. By exposing students to Gospel values, high academic standards and individual expectations, Holy Cross School is committed to preparing and enhancing the personal excellence of each and every student.

Core Values

Faith: We are rooted in the life and tradition of Jesus Christ, as expressed in the Roman Catholic Church. We encourage a personal relationship with God the Father. We nurture the ongoing, daily influence of the Holy Spirit in the spiritual, intellectual, and physical growth of our students and families.

Academic Excellence: We provide the finest instruction, resources, and support services possible to enhance the growth and development of our students and nurture a love of learning to last a lifetime.

Morals: Based upon traditional Catholic values, our students at the earliest of age develop a sense of servant leadership as they work towards identifying and meeting the needs of a community at large.

Discipline: We promote rules and regulations to govern the behavior of students, faculty, administration, and parents to develop and maintain a healthy school atmosphere conducive to the promotion and preservation of academic freedom and effective teaching and learning.

Social Justice: We place the common good of society at the heart of our educational processes in which all are called to utilize the gifts and talents we possess for the benefit of others while recognizing each person’s value. Personal growth is meaningful only in the context of unselfish service to all members of the community, not just members of this school’s community, which uplifts the human person’s quality of life, especially the less fortunate and underprivileged.
