From The Academy of the Holy Cross

Holy Cross is a private, Catholic, independent, all-girls school that has been educating “women of courage, compassion and scholarship” since 1868. As the current global health crisis has challenged schools to develop innovative and engaging methods of instruction, we are at the forefront of providing a robust educational and student life experience. We prepare girls to feel confident taking academic risks, leading their peers, and standing up for their beliefs. Our graduates are exceptionally well prepared for college and beyond. We offer a rigorous curriculum including Honors and AP courses, Project Lead the Way Engineering, and a Dual-Enrollment/Dual-Credit program with Marymount University. In our championship athletics, extensive arts, or by providing 11,000 hours of service annually, our girls do not wait for opportunity, they create it. The Class of 2020 received $22,000,000+ in college scholarships. Our girls believe they can do anything because they see girls do everything.
