Holy Cross High School is a Catholic college preparatory school located in the borough of Queens. Following the educational and spiritual vision of the Blessed Father Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of the Holy Cross, Holy Cross is dedicated to educating the hearts and minds of young people.
In the spring of 2017, Holy Cross High School enhanced its mission by announcing the decision to move to co-education. Beginning this fall with the class of 2022, and each year after, young women can apply to join Holy Cross. In so doing, Holy Cross High School joined the vast majority of schools sponsored by the congregation of Holy Cross in the United States that have also observed the guidance of Blessed Basil Moreau. The mission to educate young people in the Holy Cross tradition of the Catholic faith and prepare them for future life situations remains as important today as it did when our school first opened.
The professional faculty at Holy Cross is well experienced and adept at implementing educational practices and techniques designed to meet each student’s individual learning style. With a 12:1 student teacher ratio and more than 60 electives and 25 advanced placement and honors courses, Holy Cross High School offers an inspiring selection of classes to spark new interests and allow students to carve a personalized career path, from pre-med and computer science to engineering.
Our international travel is an exceptional way for students to apply the concepts they discuss on campus to their real-world experiences. Holy Cross High School is dedicated to providing a challenging college preparatory education aligned with state and national criteria through various academic programs. Every freshman receives their own laptop through our 1:1 Chromebook program. Most recently, Holy Cross received a gift from an alumnus of $1 million for enhancements to our STREAM program (Science, Theology, Robotic, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).
We have a strong alumni network that offers invaluable guidance to students as they explore their colleges of choice. The Congregation of the Holy Cross also sponsors six colleges and universities in the United States, including St. Edward’s University, the University of Portland, Stonehill College, King’s College, Holy Cross College and the University of Notre Dame.
Our graduates have a competitive edge in regards to scholarships and programs when applying to these colleges as these schools are aware of the quality education our students receive at Holy Cross. Last spring, one out of three graduates received an academic award, with the class of 2017 earning more than $20,000,000 in academic scholarships.
“How we educate the MIND will change with the times. How we cultivate the heart is and will remain timeless,” said Blessed Father Basil Moreau.
Holy Cross High School is located at 26-20 Francis Lewis Blvd. in Flushing.
