“You Belong Here” is the message we proclaim. Below is why we believe “You Belong Here”.
I feel like I belong at Holy Cross because it is this environment which has allowed me to grow and explore my potential. I have found a place where I can feel comfortable approaching my teachers, stay busy with a variety of activities and make the best friends I have ever had. I have felt welcomed here from the minute the admissions committee visited my eighth grade class and I cannot picture myself at any other school. At Holy Cross, my talents are celebrated and I am challenged each day academically, socially, and spiritually to be a better person than I was the day before.

I belong at Holy Cross because the benefits of the school suit me and fit my personality. It is smaller than the public school to which I would have gone so it (Holy Cross) gives me more opportunities. I could play field hockey because it is a smaller program and I could get noticed. Holy Cross has smaller class sizes so I have options to get individual attention from my teachers. My teachers are more accessible to me. Another reason I belong at Holy Cross is my Faith. I can express my beliefs with people who share them (Beliefs). A positive aspect of going to a small school is being able to try new things. I have never played lacrosse and was able to try it (Lacrosse). I have many great experiences at Holy Cross, made great friends and memories, which is why I belong at Holy Cross.

I am a person of many different interests and talents. Very few schools offer activities that satisfy all my interest. Holy Cross is one that does. If I want to take difficult courses to challenge my intellect, I can. If I want to be a role model in student leadership, I can. If I want to sing and accompany the choir, I can. If I want to direct or work backstage, I can. Holy Cross provides everything that I could possibly want and I would not want it any other way.

I can't believe my child is 2/3 of the way through freshman year already. I have been meaning to drop you an email - I had to stop up to the school a little over a week ago to drop something off to the nurse and I can't even tell you how impressed I was with the vibe given off by the students and the staff. When considering where to send our child to middle & high school, we visited our local public school and I really felt uneasy in the halls. This was a big part of the reason we chose to attend (Catholic) middle school and now Holy Cross. Every interaction I have had this year has just left me with the confirmation that it was a good decision to put him in your hands.
