Clubs & Activities
Holy Cross offers many opportunities for our student to thrive outside of the classroom through involvement in service organizations, performing arts and clubs.
We believe that service is an integral part of the character development of our students. All of our students engage in service opportunities throughout the Lynchburg area.
Students are provided with opportunities to enhance leadership skills through Student Action Council (S.A.C.). S.A.C. members collaborate in planning student activities and serve as communicative links between students and the school administration. Student leaders at Holy Cross strive to support the school’s mission and to positively impact the overall school community.
Our orchestra program begins in the second grade and offers students the opportunity to play in a large ensemble while learning a new instrument. Students may play the violin, viola, cello, or bass. Our orchestra students learn important playing skills, music theory, and learn to work as a group. The orchestra performs in two big concerts each year in addition to their many community engagements.
Our instrument education program is for students in second through twelfth grade. Keyboard begins in second grade and band begins in fourth grade. Students progress from the beginning level through intermediate and advanced skill levels. In addition to weekly instructional classes, students also perform for school concerts and at local and district American Independent Music Association festivals. Advanced musicians may audition for the All-State Honors Band Performance Tour in the spring.
In an effort to build more opportunities for leadership, fellowship and fun, our students enjoy a monthly Club Day built into the academic schedule:
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)
National Honor Society
National Junior Honor Society
The Gaelogos, the Holy Cross FIRST Lego League team, meets after school on designated days in the fall while our Jr. FIRST Lego team meets in the spring.
Our Key Club has made over 8,000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the Daily Bread of Lynchburg in the last year, and members also serve once a month at the Daily Bread.
Our Forensics Team regularly competes in local tournaments as well as the Catholic Forensics League National Tournament. Team members are consistently recognized for their excellence in numerous competition categories.
