The Mission of Holy Cross High School is to assist in the total Christian education of young men and women. To accomplish this, Holy Cross High School provides a framework, which fosters integration of the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical and social growth of each individual.
Holy Cross High School is an integral part of the mission of the Catholic Church. Our special role at Holy Cross High School is founded on the love that Jesus Christ has for us. We believe this love will lead us to an awareness of the uniqueness of each person in the Holy Cross community. The schools PURPOSE is to foster the development of conscience and a sense of responsibility in each member of the school community. We trust that the awareness of Christs love for us will lead us to a Christian commitment which manifests love and concern for all.
Holy Cross prepares students for college placement and a successful professional life while stimulating intellectual growth. The Guidance Department, takes an active role in recommending courses for students based on their educational background, ability, needs and maturity. The curriculum is structured so that the interests and abilities of the students are fully recognized.
Holy Cross believes in creating an environment that is most conducive to learning. Consequently, Block Scheduling was implemented in 1997, and quickly became popular among the students and faculty.
The instructional model of Block Scheduling calls for the extension of classroom periods to 80 minutes. An increased time period allows teachers and students to delve more deeply into subject matter and increase activity-based learning and group-oriented learning strategies.
