The inviting community at Holy Cross made me feel like I was a part of a family the moment I walked in for Open House. As a current sophomore, I can assure you that the previous statement is still true! There are so many great activities to participate in that get you involved with the community and I have made so many friends because of them. The teachers really care about the students, as well, and it has made all the difference to help me be prepared for my future!

Attending Holy Cross High School is the best decision I have made. The overall environment is very positive; it feels like a second family at school. The teachers and faculty are encouraging and will do anything to help you succeed. The classes themselves are challenging and interesting. Everyone is so amazing there. Definitely a 10/10 school!
HolyCross has been a breath of fresh air after leaving Oxford. The educators are there to help and care for the children. Children feel safe and are able to seal out adults who can and are willing to help solve any concerns they may be having. It feels like a mini home at Holy Cross! I have full confidence my children will be prepared for college And life after their time at HC is complete.
