Welcome!

Now enrolling for Fall 2016

Mission Statement

Holy Cross School, a ministry of Holy Cross Parish, educates and guides children in their spiritual, intellectual and moral development.  We offer a strong academic program in an environment centered on the message of the Gospels and the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church.

 

Philosophy

Holy Cross School provides an academically challenging Catholic education.  We welcome the diversity in our school and value the unique gifts students and families contribute to our school community.  We recognize parents as the primary educators of their children, and teachers as facilitators of learning.  We integrate high academic standards with experiences that develop the values, attitudes, and habits necessary for our students to become intelligent, articulate, and socially responsible citizens who contribute to their family, faith and world communities.

Our School

Our staff provides a safe and supportive place that encourages open communication and the ability for children to express their feelings and work together on problem solving skills.

Holy Cross Preschool acknowledges the importance of kindergarten readiness to provide a strong foundation. In doing so, we separate our Pre-Kindergarten and preschool to focus on the necessary skills to make them successful.

 

Activities

We encourage a play-based active learning environment to allow for many opportunities to practice social interaction and relationship skills.

We promote children’s active involvement with activities, and materials that offer children opportunities for responsible and cooperative roles in the classroom.

 

 

 

Our Events

We have many community building events that our preschool participates in.
  1. The preschool participates in the Cookies for Courage with the Elementary School to honor our First Responders on September 11th.

  2. We participate in the annual Trike-A-Thon for St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

  3. We help brighten the lives of the elderly folks at Dominican Oaks by making decorations for their Holiday celebrations.
