Holy Cross School is a National Blue Ribbon School with rigorous academics and a welcoming environment dedicated to community service. Teachers tailor their instruction to the individual needs of students and can easily enrich the already advanced curriculum to challenge students. Students perform numerous community service projects to help those less fortunate. Holy Cross is awesome!
Our kindergartener loves Holy Cross. His class is small - 17 kids with a teacher and an aide. As parents we love the strong sense of community; the class is small enough that we really get to know the other parents and kids at birthday parties, field trips, and school events. The sense of community extends to the students too, where the older students look out for and mentor the younger ones.
In addition to typical classroom instruction that includes an advanced math program, they take classes in art, music, library, computers, and a really fun PE program. Our son has had opportunities to do public speaking and participate in pageants that he would not have done if the environment were not so nurturing.
The teachers and staff at Holy Cross are dedicated, caring, and excellent at what they do. They challenge the students intellectually and foster a values-based view of the world that serves students long after they graduate.
Students are matched up with a buddy three grades above (or below, as the case may be). What sealed our decision to enroll in Holy Cross was seeing how confident, intelligent and compassionate the older students are.
