Empowering Academic Excellence

The Holy Cross School curriculum is rigorous and meets the requirements of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Every class is taught from a Biblical world view by experienced teachers, and small class sizes enable them to learn what each student needs to be academically successful. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum and a full slate of fine arts, music, STEM and physical education rounds out each school day.


"We considered a number of schools, both public and private, faith-based and secular. All had features which recommended them, but none seemed to be the right fit, the right combination of Christian education with high academic standards. Then,our good friends, who had sent their two sons to Holy Cross School, suggested that we consider it. We visited with the first grade teacher. She carefully reviewed our son's academic records and discussed them with other educators before venturing an opinion on whether or not she would be a good teacher for our son and whether or not our son would be a good fit for Holy Cross. We know she also prayed. The answer to both questions was "yes!" Our son's eight years at Holy Cross prepared him not only for high school, but also for college. Most important, they prepared him for life – a Christian walk in the light of the Gospel."

"The Holy Cross community has been an influential part of our small ministry to Korean students. The encouragement demonstrated by the teachers, the generosity and kindness displayed by the students and above all the love administered to these young students in our Christ community have been exceptional.

As we continue to seek opportunities to expand our ministry, we look forward to our partnership with Holy Cross in providing a loving Christian environment for these young students from Korea."
