At the close of the 2016-17 academic year, three inspirational occurrences spoke to the significance of a Holy Cross High School education:
- On the day of graduation we learned that the class of 2017 received over $20 Million in scholarship support for their next academic steps at colleges and universities around the country. This number represents just over $100,000 per graduate, or well more than double the cost of tuition for four years at Holy Cross High School.
- Two weeks earlier the Corporate Board of Members and the Board of Directors voted unanimously to expand the mission at Holy Cross High School by beginning to accept young women for admission in the fall of 2018. This makes a powerful Holy Cross education now available to both genders.
- Ten days before the historic vote in support of co-education, Holy Cross High School received a gift of $1,000,000 from a proud alumnus to enhance the STREAM Curriculum: Science, Theology, Robotics, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.
It is with these inspiring facts that we look to a terrific 2017-18 academic year. With growing resources there comes support for the ever-improving results of Holy Cross students. With a broadened base of future students there will be even greater motivation and inspiration for one another. It is these very truths envisioned by Blessed Fr. Basil Moreau, CSC, the founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, that urged him to proclaim, “Education is the art of bringing young people to completeness.”
Holy Cross High School is a very special place. It is made a special place by the faculty and staff who guide the students, by the parents who encourage them, and by the students themselves.
Please feel free to come to campus at any time. It would be my pleasure to introduce you to all that makes Holy Cross such a special place.
