MESSAGE FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Train up a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
In today’s rapidly changing world and among the competing trends in education and reform, often simple truths are lost. At Holy Cross Lutheran Academy we still know the following to be true: that our children must be loved and nurtured in order to learn, that we all need to feel part of a caring community, that learning is joyful, that children’s keen sense of justice and kindness can reshape tomorrow, and most importantly, that they can exceed all expectations and learn to thrive and flourish not just survive in the 21st Century. All of these truths are supported and founded within our Christian faith.
Imagine a school that is designed to raise each child up – each family up – our community up.
Imagine a school where each day is filled with challenge, creativity, joy, and discovery. A place where there are small classes, personalized attention, and a loving, nurturing, and safe environment for every child.
Imagine a school that focuses not only on the intellect of that child, but on their social and emotional well being to build a strong mind, heart, and character.
Welcome to Holy Cross Lutheran Academy
.. where dreams of a great school become a reality. Where your child will be loved and and they will be safe, challenged and enlightened and taught to the highest standards in education.
Who are we?
Holy Cross is a growing and flourishing PK- 12 school recognized as a leader in Christian education for over 23 years! For almost a quarter of a century, we have been loving, teaching and inspiring students to confidently step into the future. At Holy Cross Lutheran Academy we understand the Great Commission of sharing his word and making disciples while showing that we must “love God first then others”. In addition to this, we instill the love of learning, leading and serving along the way.
We offer wonderful preschool and VPK programs designed to build a strong foundation and instill a love and excitement for learning. Our specialized KPrep program offers an accelerated academic curriculum for emerging learners in preparation for our enriched academic or Kindergarten program. Our Elementary school is always buzzing with excitement with engaging and relevant lessons and activities and lots of smiling faces.
Our middle school students have many opportunities to grow and learn and are taught by highly trained teachers who understand the unique needs of this age group.
Holy Cross is an AP Capstone school with a fully wireless campus and a schedule that optimizes learning and creativity. Our growing high school program offers a robust and comprehensive curriculum with a flourishing performing arts, music and fine arts department and expanding athletics! The class of 2022 is our 4th graduating class and is the largest to date! This class received acceptances to UF, UCF, Stetson, Seminole State, FSU, Flagler, Rollins, UNC, Oglethorpe, Seton Hall, UWF, Valencia and Embry Riddle.
HCLA is dedicated to preparing all students for whatever might come after high school whether that is college, the military, trades or mission work. We seek to strengthen students while guiding them to whatever their passion might be so they can lead a transformed life through Christ
No schools in America are in a better position to seize the future and to guide the next generation than independent Christian schools. We know what we stand for and have the freedom — the independence — to make it happen.
HCLA is the school that you have imagined for your child. I invite you to experience it for yourself and your family. Please contact our Admissions Office today to schedule a campus visit. Walk the halls, sit in on a class, listen to the conversations of our students and faculty, and I believe you will recognize what makes Holy Cross Lutheran Academy distinctive and a great school for your children and your family.
