Welcome to Holy Cross Catholic School!

At Holy Cross, we strive to maintain learning programs that foster academic achievement while providing for physical, social, and spiritual growth. We understand the significance of making the right choice for your child and invite you to discover the rewarding experience of a Catholic School education. At Holy Cross, we are proud to serve the educational needs of the children of the city of Rochester and the surrounding areas. We are a family of families at our parish school with strong core values rooted in our Catholic faith.

Holy Cross School strives to be a shining light in our community, a beacon of hope. We embrace all people regardless of race, religion, creed, ethnic background, or other differences and take pride in the diversity of our student body. Faith is integrated into everything we teach. We view faith as the foundation and structure of knowledge, wisdom, and values. We are proud to be able to offer a faith-based education that is not offered by our public school counterparts. Parents are delighted about our mission to “make a difference” in society.

We believe that parents are the first teachers of their children. Together parents, students, teachers, and God work as partners in every student’s education. This partnership forms a powerful community united in the belief that Christian values and excellent academics will best prepare your child for the future. We expect our students to learn the importance of following the example of Jesus by serving others. Come experience how an education at Holy Cross School can make a difference in your child’s life. You have to experience our nurturing environment and compassionate family atmosphere to know that this is the best place for your child to learn and grow. We are proud to offer:
