Thank you for your interest in The Academy of the Holy Cross – a school that encourages you to make a difference!

The Academy has had a presence in the Washington area since 1868, educating women to become leaders in our ever-changing world. Through a rich academic program, an abundance of co-curricular activities, and a nurturing environment, Holy Cross offers a well-rounded program created just for girls. We know girls - we know they thrive in a community that recognizes their power and potential. When our students graduate, they are well prepared for college and beyond. Our graduates continue to make a difference in medicine, business, education, politics, the arts, and society.

Our goal in the Admissions Office is to ensure that your family gets to know Holy Cross inside and out. We know that choosing a high school is a big decision, and we take seriously the commitment your family is making. We invite you to visit our campus on a Tartan Tour, meet our wonderful faculty and staff, and our exceptional students so that you can experience the Holy Cross difference for yourself.

Please browse our website for particular information and never hesitate to contact the Admissions Office! 

Go Tartans!
