Thank you for your interest in The Academy of the Holy Cross. We welcome all families to come visit our campus this Fall. Take a tour, register for Tartan for a Day, participate in our athletic events, or catch us at a fair. The Admissions team is always ready and eager to help prospective students and their families. 

Tartan for a Day

The best way to learn about Holy Cross is to experience it first-hand! Eighth grade students are invited to become “Tartans for a Day.” Prospective students are paired with one of our current freshmen to attend classes, enjoy lunch in one of our courtyards, engage with students and teachers, and learn more about our signature programming such as STEM, Performing Arts, Athletics and much more. Visitors receive an iPad for the day to experience our 1:1 technology program. We hope that our prospective students get a sense of what it means to be a Holy Cross girl and we look forward to meeting you!

Parents are invited to Coffee & Conversation with the President and Principal and may join a student-led tour.

Our girls believe they can do anything, because they see girls do everything.

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.
