The Academy of the Holy Cross

Founded in 1868, Holy Cross is fast approaching 150 years of educating “women of courage, compassion and scholarship.” The Academy is part of the worldwide Holy Cross family of sisters brothers and priests, who established University of Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College and St. Edward’s University. Through global partnerships, the Academy includes a growing international population.

Every component of our 28-acre campus is centered on enhancing our students’ experience. The Academy features three outdoor courtyards, a state-of-the-theatre, dance studio, classrooms designed for active learning, and a multi-sport synthetic turf field.

Holy Cross graduates are exceptionally prepared for college and beyond. As education today is globally focused, we offer the IB Programme in addition to a rigorous curriculum including Honors and AP. Students utilize the latest technology including a 1:1 iPad program and our Technology and Creativity Center, which houses a 3-D printer for our IB Design Technology course. All seniors participate in a 3-week internship program working in a career setting that interests them. The Class of 2016 received over $10 million in college scholarships.
