At Holy Cross I experienced love and family. Throughout the years I made great friends that I can call family. They molded me to the man I am today and opened my future with great opportunities both academically and non academically. What I would like to see change at Holy Cross is the preparation for college. Academically they help, however for everything else that involves getting ready for college they do no prepare us.

Holy Cross offers a strong academics programs where I have been able to excel. I am currently taking AP and Dual Enrollment Classes. I have been in honor classes throughout my years at Holy Cross School. The teachers are well-trained and helpful to the students. I have had the opportunity to participate in extracurricular programs including sports, clubs and the Holy Cross Tiger Band. In the Band Program I have mastered my musical talent and am currently playing alto, tenor, clarinet and bassoon. Holy Cross offers strong catholic faith as well. This year I am serving as an Extraordinary Minister. I have made lifelong friends at Holy Cross and have come to emulate the value of the Holy Cross Man.
I just recently graduated from HC and it made me the man I am today. Between my participation in the Scholar's program, the band, and debate program, HC truly did shape me in mind body heart and soul. I would strongly recommend that anyone send their son here. The teachers truly care about their students and I was more than prepared for college.
