  • In 1954, a new building with classroom facilities, science labs, a library, and a cafeteria was erected to meet the needs of the growing student body. Five additional facilities were added: the Student Center in 1962, the Brothers’ Residence in 1964, the junior Olympic swimming pool in 1965, the middle school building which was originally built as a new boarders’ residence in 1966, and an athletic building which housed a weight training room and video facility in 2002

Resident students were housed in two dormitories located in the administration building as well as two residence halls which provided private accommodations for upperclassmen. In 1972 the boarding school was discontinued, and the middle school opened.

A Piece of Holy Cross History

The beginings

  • In 1849, at the invitation of the Most Reverend Antoine Blanc, Archbishop of New Orleans, five brothers of the Congregation of Holy Cross were sent by Father Basil Moreau to assume responsibility for St. Mary’s Orphanage
  • During the early years of the foundation New Orleans was devastated by a series of epidemics: cholera, yellow fever, and malaria. The city suffered privation as a result of the northern blockade during the War Between the States. There was the continuing aggravation of the climate of which Brother Vincent said, “was unhealthy, especially for strangers.” More than once consideration was given to withdrawing from New Orleans
  • In 1859 the congregation purchased Reynes Farm, a riverfront plantation. In 1879, as the need for an orphanage diminished, St. Isidore’s College, a boarding and day school was opened. This became the original site on which Holy Cross School stood and it is here that Holy Cross’ history officially began.
