Holy Cross Catholic School

Boys and girls in Grades Pre‐K through 8 are welcome to attend. We provide a Catholic education for the children of our parish in a fully accredited curriculum that has its foundation in the Gospel. We have an excellent faculty, who are committed to our parish and their work as educators. Our school bars no one from entry on the basis of race or religion. Students from other parishes may only attend if their local parish does not have its own parish school.
