Become a Lady of the Academy.

Empowering girls to become women of courage, compassion, and scholarship.

The Academy of the Holy Cross prepares girls to feel confident taking academic risks, leading their peers, and standing up for their beliefs. Guided by our Catholic faith and the mission of the Sisters of the Holy Cross, we believe in the power of academic excellence and the potential of selfless generosity. We value interactions with every student and strive to educate the mind, body, and spirit of each girl in the unique way that she learns best.

Our girls embrace challenging academics with a global perspective, top-notch athletics teams, performing arts productions, social justice opportunities, and dozens of extracurricular activities. Every Holy Cross girl completes an internship in a career that interests them at prestigious organizations, such as The Washington Post, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, and National Institutes of Health (NIH). And, they receive the tools and the support they need to thrive in college, including at renowned institutions like Cornell, M.I.T., Yale, and Notre Dame.

Above all, every Holy Cross girl knows she is valued as a scholar, an athlete, an artist, and most importantly, an individual with unique talents and aspirations. Teachers, staff, and coaches tailor their instruction for each student, ensuring our girls are empowered to go out and better the world.
