The mission assessment focuses on the Catholic and Holy Cross identity of each school. The assessment identifies areas of best practice and areas of improvement in each of the four “Pillars” that hold up the educational mission of Holy Cross: Message, Community, Service and Prayer.

A Piece of Holy Cross History

  • In 1945 the Holy Cross alma mater was introduced.
  • 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
  • The boarding program attracted as many as 150 students a year from across the south as well as Central and South America. 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.
