Academic Coordinators' Message
Your initiative to explore new frontiers has led you to one of the most dynamic academic programs in the country. Holy Cross High School has built a strong academic tradition and applied innovative analytical teaching methods that promote a well-rounded student while excelling the student’s gifts and talents. Mediocrity is not acceptable for any student. Holy Cross High School will challenge your student to work on their weaknesses and explore, excel, and become masters of their strengths.
Your student’s first encounter begins with an interview that involves test result evaluation, course planning and post-secondary planning. Holy Cross believes students, parents and former teachers know the student best and therefore should be active participants in the decision of course work
and level. We will never send a computer generated placement schedule to your student.
Once you become a part of the Holy Cross educational experience, the next four years will be designed to plan for your post secondary future. Each year the student is evaluated by their current teacher and recommended for the following year’s classes. They meet one-on-one with the academic counselor to choose the classes that will be prepare them for a successful career. All students are given the opportunity to take a variety of standardized tests to prepare for college entrance exams, such as the ACT and SAT. Along with this, a free ACT preparation seminar is offered during their enrichment class.
Holy Cross graduates 100% of the senior class with 96% attending a four-year college, 2% attending a two-year or vocational school and 2% entering the work force or military.
We welcome your questions and comments and we are proud of our academic success!
