High School

Our high school offers a rigorous college preparatory curriculum that encourages creativity, independence, and curiosity. Our curriculum enables our students to develop their individual talents and abilities and provides the encouragement needed to become a lifelong learner. A tradition continued from middle school is our monthly Club Day, an opportunity for our students to continue exploring their interests and further develop their leadership skills. At Holy Cross, we are preparing our students for success in college and beyond.
