Our Spirituality

Holy Cross Academy is a Christ-centered community. We are committed to the spiritual formation of each of our students, as well as our faculty and staff. Through personal and shared prayer, religious instruction and participation in liturgy, each member of our school grows in her/his relationship with Christ.

As a school established in the tradition of St. Francis de Sales, we work to imbue our community with the teachings and spirituality of this great spiritual master and Doctor of the Church.

The spirituality of St. Francis de Sales is best summed up in his motto, Live Jesus.  Our holy patron teaches us to bring Christ to others in all we say and do. Through our union with God, we learn to offer him our work and open our hearts to the needs of our brothers and sisters, both near and far. Our school family opens its arms to the needs of both our local and our global community.

Beginning in St. Mary Preschool, and then in kindergarten onto the 8th grade, our children learn their prayers and the traditions of our Catholic faith. Handing on the faith to our students is the greatest gift we can give to them.
