Holy Cross Education
Educate your mind, body, and spirit.
A Holy Cross education is integrated, holistic, balanced. Knowledge and faith merge at Holy Cross schools. Blessed Basil Anthony Moreau, founder of the Holy Cross congregations, provided his philosophy of Christian education that is distinctive at Holy Cross institutions.
“We shall always place education side by side with instruction; the mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart. While we prepare useful citizens for society, we shall likewise do our utmost to prepare citizens for heaven.” ~Blessed Basil Anthony Moreau, Circular Letter 36, 1849
We believe that a Holy Cross education is for those who want to make a difference in the world. At Saint Mary’s, we’ve been educating students since the sisters founded the school in 1844. When you graduate, you’ll move into the world as a prepared and responsive citizen.
