This will be our 3rd year at True Cross. The first thought that comes to mind is faith enriched. The teachers are dedicated and are real people who care about their students and their faith. My children are challenged everyday. The curriculum is not easy breezy. A lot is expected from the kids and they are held accountable. This teaches life lessons, which I feel is missing in public school. The school offers Spanish,choir,band,soccer,basketball,volleyball,track,4-H,Art,piano,extended day,tutoring and love. The principal is committed to the school and the entire True Cross Family. The church is a big part of the childrens experience here.

love this school and the faculty and staff there. My son has been there since Kindergarten and is about to start Middle School. I love how involved the teachers and staff are with the students. Everyone knows everyone and it truly does have a family atmosphere. My son will continue there until he graduates. This school is truly a wonderful place!

My children have attended True Cross from elementary to middle school. The teachers, office staff, and administrators have always been helpful and truly interested in not only my children s well-being but in the family as a whole. The curriculum is excellent and has allowed my oldest child to graduate a year early from High School. True Cross sets the bar high in academics, provides a setting conducive to family and strong moral values, and produces well rounded, good mannered pupils armed with the ability to meet the demands of their future. I strongly recommend this school to anyone interested in an alternative to public education.

Our family has been a part of True Cross for many years, and that is just what it is, 'a family'. The environment is nurturing and faith filled. We are truly thankful to be a part of the True Cross Family!

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.
