Holy Cross Grade School and Preschool

Holy Cross Catholic School is successful, first, because we have great families with great children!  Providing them with exceptional and caring teachers who love to teach children, together we are "A Catholic Learning Community Forming Disciples of Christ."  We are a parish school supported solely by the stewardship gifts from well over 2000 parish families in our three Catholic parishes: Holy Cross, St. Teresa, and Our Lady of Guadalupe.  Registered Catholic families do not pay tuition to enroll their children at Holy Cross Catholic School or Trinity Catholic Jr/Sr. High School. The gifts from all parish families, many of whom have graduated their children from schools, help make stewardship support of our parishes and Catholic schools possible!  Their generous gifts to their parishes make it a reality! Each November, our parishes encourage our Catholic families to participate in the annual stewardship renewal as part of their renewed commitment to their parish.

Trinity Junior/Senior High School

The mission of Trinity Catholic Junior Senior High School is to unite parish, home and school into a Catholic Learning Community dedicated to academic excellence and spiritual growth.  Our vision is to prepare students to be practicing Christians who use the values, knowledge, and skills needed to live, learn, and work as leaders in their school, church, and community.  Trinity Catholic integrates Christian values into all courses of study while treating each student as a unique person with God given gifts.  The Trinity community of students, families, faculty, and staff live our Christian values by giving their time and talent serving others.  The unity of Christ, the master teacher; parents, the first teachers of their children; and the school educators, a daily teacher in the lives of students make Trinity Catholic a quality school.
