Empowering Academic Excellence - Building Christian Character

One of the greatest strengths of The Holy Cross Way is our elementary school. Since 1971, Holy Cross Lutheran School has excelled at providing affordable, high quality Christian education to the greater Madison community. Students from kindergarten through 8th grade have been thriving in an atmosphere where learning is fun and students and teachers truly care about each other.

At Holy Cross, we provide our students an educational climate that is academically excellent. Our faculty and staff guide students through learning that focuses on core knowledge enriched with the arts, technology, music, STEM and athletics. The Holy Cross graduate is a well-rounded student, abundantly prepared for high school and beyond.

At the heart of Holy Cross are teachers, pastors, staff, students and parents who have a deep and abiding love for God, for each other, and for this school. Those who come to our school as strangers graduate as members of a family, a family that provides friendship and love and prepares its members for this life and for the life to come. This is the Holy Cross Way.

Check out our website and our brand new video below to learn more about our school, or call 608-249-3101 to schedule a FREE Educational Success Consultation with our principal, Chris Poetter, to talk about your goals for your child’s academic career. You can also drop in to tour our school, meet with our principal, and see our students and teachers “in action.”

Contact us today! We look forward to meeting you soon and learning how we can be of service to your family.
