Welcome to Holy Cross Lutheran Academy,

I have often said that deciding to put our children into private Christian education was the best decision that my wife and I ever made.

Looking back, I remember walking my son and daughter through the hallways of their first Christian school in Jacksonville, Florida with complete confidence that they were not only going to be loved by their teachers but that they would be safe and taught to the highest standards in education; we were right.  It is with that memory, and several years as a Christian school teacher and administrator, that I embrace the role of Executive Director of Education.

Who are we?

HCLA is a growing PK-12 school, spread over three campuses, with a 20 year track record of loving, teaching, and inspiring students to confidently step into the future.  We offer excellent Pre-K programs in both Lake Mary and Sanford and our Elementary school is always buzzing with activity and smiling faces. This past May, HCLA graduated its first high school class who will be continuing studies at the University of Florida, University of North Florida, Jacksonville University and Florida Atlantic University.

We are an AP Capstone school with a fully wireless campus and a schedule that optimizes learning and creativity. 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.

Come and visit us at any of our campuses and take a tour of all that HCLA has to offer.  We look forward to meeting you and talking about how your child might fit into the Holy Cross family.
