I'm going to Holy Cross middle, and it's the best experience of my life. I still have much to offer going to my faverite school. I'm in 7th grade and I'm in the new building. I still remember my fist year at holy cross on the new campus, in the trailers. I was the first 5th grade class on the new campus, making history. I look forward and hope to go in to Holy Cross High School!

My son attended here in the 5th grade last year & I have nothing but excellent things to say about Holy Cross. They truely mean what they say when they say 'Turning boys to Men'. I say such a drastic maturity in my son in just one year. The only thing I can say is...if your son isn't there, he should be. I can't wait for the new school to open Jan of 2009!

I am a graduate of 1991. I had a wonderful experience. I realized in college that Holy Cross provided an environment that was far more collegiate than secondary. I was extremely prepared to succeed in college and ultimately in the real world. I attribute my preparation to Holy Cross' commitment to the development of the 'whole' man. They focus on individual attention and complete stimulation of a persons God given abilities. I was involved in the honors program, student government, football, wrestling, track & field, and the chorus. I was very busy, but most of us were. There were so many activities and clubs to participate in everyone found a place. I feel that the diversity that Holy Cross values helped me to be a better man. I am able to function in any atmosphere and am often admired because of my ability to relate to people. Thanks Holy Cross!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
