Holy Cross High School, an institution of excellence, is committed to the development of the whole person, offering comprehensive academic, social and athletic programs which are rooted in the Gospel and teaching of the Catholic Church. A Roman Catholic High School in the Diocese of Scranton, Holy Cross challenges its students to appreciate life-long learning and to develop character, leadership and integrity in a caring environment in order to promote a culture of peace, justice and service.
Accredited by The Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, Holy Cross High School is a comprehensive high school. Students are encouraged to select courses based on individual abilities, achievement, and goals within the limits of the specialized graduation requirements. Choice in sequence is based on standardized testing, teacher recommendations, and counseling assistance. Advanced Placement (A.P.) courses are available in English, American History, Calculus, Science, and Art.
The secondary Religious Education Program seeks to form the whole Christian person in an integrated faith life within the Church community by interweaving the four components of catechesis: word, worship, community, and service. Young people develop their understanding of the Catholic tradition through the study of content of the Church’s faith.
Schoolwide, Holy Cross offers a wide range of fun activities for which the entire student body has an opportunity to participate. Homecoming, with a wide variety of spirit week activities including school dances and pep rallies, concludes our Fall sports season. Each year, Catholic Schools Week begins with the celebration of mass and concludes with a variety of activities that students enjoy. The highlight of Spring activities at Holy Cross is our traditional student and teacher Volleyball tournament.
