The past few years have brought impactful changes and improvements to The Academy of the Holy Cross! A few of our accomplishments include:

  • The re-introduction of the Moreau Options Program, a student-centered, inclusive program for students with intellectual disabilities. The energy that this dynamic program has brought to the entire community has been inspiring!
  • The installation of an all-season turf field on our upper field. Our new field will impact our soccer, lacrosse, field hockey and softball programs, dramatically improving the student experience.
  • The installation of a new roof and air conditioning in our cafeteria and auditorium. With these facilities now used every school period of the day for a variety of reasons, the spaces now function more as a school commons.
  • The creation of a new Student Technology Center, converting standard classroom space into a technology-centered, multi-purpose learning space.

These enhancements were made possible through our capital campaign, The Difference We Make: The Campaign for The Academy of the Holy Cross. Through generous support from Holy Cross families, alumnae and friends, we have exceeded our Phase I goal of $2.3 million in gifts and pledges! This early success gives us the confidence to launch Phase II of our campaign.

Please consider making Holy Cross and The Difference We Make one of your family’s giving priorities for the next five years. In doing so, you not only endorse our school mission, you also contribute to an ever-stronger Holy Cross legacy. Thank you!
