Flushing, Queens, New York — Holy Cross High School is pleased to announce that its full accreditation through the Middle States Association has been recommended for renewal!
Holy Cross extends gratitude to the Middle States Visiting Team for the time they spent this past week and for their work with the Holy Cross faculty, staff, administration and families. As part of their visit summary, the Middle States Visiting Team shared their perspective of Holy Cross teachers and administration, stating:
“Within the school building, the faculty and administration are willing to go the extra mile to provide help and support for the students, and many testified to the ways in which teachers are available to provide help before and after school, administrators provide strong support for teachers, and all are open to communication from those over whom they have charge.”
In terms of the school’s commitment to academic excellence, the Middle States Visiting Team shared:
“New electives are added to the list of student offerings on a regular basis, allowing the school to address specific interests and needs. These are supplemented by fruitful cooperation with local universities and hospitals, which provide dual-credit courses and research opportunities, in addition to more than a dozen Advanced Placement courses that are offered in-house.”
Mr. Ed Burns ‘84, Principal of Holy Cross High School said,
“We are grateful to all of our faculty, staff, students, and parents who were part of our review process; this accomplishment would not have been possible without their effort and participation. Our accreditation is a testament to the successful Mission of our school, and we look forward to continuing to educate the hearts and minds of young men and women as we welcome our first co-educational class this upcoming September.”
Holy Cross High School, a Catholic college preparatory school in Queens, New York, educates the hearts and minds of young people following the educational and spiritual vision of Blessed Father Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross.
Holy Cross embraces students who reflect social and economic diversity. The school strives to instill within each student a desire to identify and fully develop God-given talents while pursuing excellence in all endeavors.
Holy Cross’ varied academic programs and activities nurture and promote spiritual, intellectual, creative, social and psychological growth and development. As Blessed Father Basil Moreau, C.S.C. wrote in 1856, “Education is the art of helping young people to completeness.”
