For over 30 years, Student Sponsor Partners (SSP) has helped low-income families take advantage of private high school education. SSP students are also partnered with a mentor for the duration of their high school education. Holy Cross is a proud SSP partner school and helps provide students the opportunity to actualize their academic potential. Families can learn more about this program at

SP will begin the application process for the Class of 2024 later this Fall. In September, interested families can visit to begin their application and learn more about the application process.

SSP is an external organization; prospective families that have applied for financial aid directly through Holy Cross need to apply separately to SSP.

Families interested in attending Holy Cross for 9th grade may apply for both SSP and financial aid, however students attending Holy Cross as a member of SSP are not eligible for financial aid through the school since they are already receiving a reduction of tuition.

Holy Cross is partnered with Financial Aid Independent Review, Inc. in order to provide qualifying families with tuition assistance.
