    Academic Excellence

    Following the example of Jesus, Holy Cross Catholic School committed to assisting parents in educating their children. Our school strives to provide a nurturing environment which encourages students to grow and develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially. Through instructional programs using a variety of techniques and resources, students will become responsible, self-disciplined, faith-filled learners who are socially conscious and positive contributors to the community.

    Every student works with their teacher to establish academic goals throughout the year and these goals are tracked and measured in the student’s data notebook.

    – Our curriculum follows common core standards as established by the Dioceses of Toledo
    – Our Curriculum is aligned with State of Ohio Content Standards

    Leadership Focused

    Every child has leadership abilities. As a licensed Leader In Me school Holy Cross is bringing out those abilities in all of our students beginning with our youngest. HCCS students experience a new level of pride and confidence and aspire to be servant leaders. Leadership skills are taught to all students using The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, developed by FranklinCovey Education.

    The 7 Habits represent a holistic approach to becoming effective personally and interpersonally. They help students build the 21st-century life skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive and collaborative society. Participating in TLIM is life changing for students, teachers and caregivers.
