 Senior Football Players Honor Faculty Members

  • A few years ago a tradition was started where senior athletes are given the opportunity to recognize a faculty or staff member with the honor of wearing their game day jersey. The students are asked to pick someone who has helped make them the Holy Cross Men they have become. Today, senior football player Kym Wimberly dedicated his jersey Mrs. Jill Miester, Michael Ricks honored Mrs. Kelly Clark and Landen Bates recognized Ms. Julianne Watson.  Congratulations to all of you! We are HC!

  • Holy Cross School Celebrates Academic Achievements
    • Holy Cross School was proud to celebrate the academic achievements of its students, including two National Merit Semifinalists, 22 students achieving a score of 30 or higher on the ACT, 26 students and recent graduates achieving a 5 on the Advanced Placement test, 3 students achieving AP Scholar distinction, and 3 students achieving AP Scholar with Honors.

 

  • Holy Cross Gathers to Celebrate the Exaltation of the Cross
    • Thurs the 14th, the Holy Cross school community gathered to celebrate the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross with a middle and high school liturgy. The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, celebrated every year on September 14, recalls three historical events: the finding of the True Cross by Saint Helena, the dedication of churches built by Constantine on the site of the Holy Sepulchre and Mount Calvary and the restoration of the True Cross to Jerusalem. In a deeper sense, the feast also celebrates the Holy Cross as the instrument of our salvation.  As our founder Basil Moreau stated, Crux Spec Unica – the cross our only hope.
