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.
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.
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.
