This a wonderful place. All teachers have many years of teaching experience. Most have their Master's degrees. No high stakes testing, no bullying, a great community of people. Not all students are Catholic, some are here for the great academics and small class size.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
These characteristics are as important as individual or academic achievement at Holy Cross. Students help one another and for the most part integrity and positive values obvious to those who visit.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a community member
If the teachers were not effective, the school would not survive. The teachers truly believe and love what they teach. If they were in it only for the money, they would be somewhere else.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a community member
Sometimes, the work can pile up if the students don't keep up with what they need to do when. And when this happens, the students get a real-life lesson in learning to manage their time.

Honesty is a high priority for Holy Cross students. Through teacher's examples, students strive to be the best students they can be.

Holy Cross Catholic Academy is a small but fierce group of students. A school, yes, but more a family. Through exceptional teachers and a brilliant learning atmosphere, HCCA excels in academics, both inside and outside of the school building. Being small, if a student wants to participate in multiple sports, that's not only an option, but also highly encouraged. Holy Cross Catholic Academy is a great place to send your children.



- a parent
Holy Cross cares about all aspects of a child's development. Intellectual,spiritual, social, and moral facets of each individual child are nurtured in a community of faith and family.

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.



- a student
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.
