Student Testimonial

Sure, we have Religion class each day, and Chapel every Wednesday, but I don't really think that's where we learn bout God the most. I think it comes from the students and teachers. Their actions, their words, and their attitudes are all places that you can learn about God. And that is why I love Holy Cross. Read More

Parent Testimonial

I transferred my son to HCLA from a well-respected, sought-after school where his needs were not being met. His teacher gives me daily feedback, and I did not even request this! The loving nature and willingness to treat each student as a unique and individual learner has been amazing. He tells me every day how much he likes this new school! Thank you for making a world of difference for my son and our family. Lisa V.Read More
