Holy Cross Catholic School Mission Statement

“To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love, For it is in giving that we receive. . .”
~ from The Prayer of Saint Francis

    We, Holy Cross Catholic School, take Jesus as our model, in order to serve our diverse parish, surrounding parishes, and our entire neighborhood. We open doors to a rigorous Catholic education for all children, prekindergarten through eighth grade. The school, in the light of Christ, nurtures, affirms, and challenges students in their pursuit of learning and the responsibilities of faith and citizenship.
