If you are looking for more than a letter on a report card this school is for you. All are welcome here, as long as you are interested in learning. Ascension only admits kids they determine worthy ($$$). HCCA is the very best in all around education. I actually thanked my Mom for recommending this school.

My son has attended Holy Cross since 6th grade. He is now in the 8th grade, he really enjoys Holy Cross. I love that he is able to learn more about the Catholic faith ,and is able to attend mass on a weekly basis. He is also challenged academically, and has played just about every sport they offer. I highly recommend Holy Cross.

Most teachers have years of teaching, and they are great teachers. Not a lot of sports though, clubs. AP or dual credit classes are not abundant. Few college level classes. Overall the school has a great learning environment. If you want more, you might want to check Ascension Academy (though ive heard its much harder) first.

Small class sizes, experienced teaching staff (over 10 yrs. of teaching for most teachers), wonderful opportunities for extra curricular activities, warm and expects the best from all students. It's a great place for creating a total educational experience. One where character is as important as achievement.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
