Holy Cross School

Relying on the prayers of all our parishioners, Holy Cross School is grateful to minister to children and families in the name of the parish.

Holy Cross School celebrated its 150th year of service to Santa Cruz in 2012. Founded in 1862 by the Daughters of Charity and transferred into the care of the Adrian Dominicans in 1944, Holy Cross School offers a Catholic Education to the families of Holy Cross Parish and the surrounding communities. We proudly look back on our history, and today we eagerly continue to seek better ways to serve students, families, the faith community, and the world.

Our location, a block from the city center of Santa Cruz on a hilltop graced by the white steeple of Holy Cross Church, emphasizes our connection to both parish and civic life. Our Emmet Street building houses grades Kindergarten through Eight. The High Street site includes our Preschool, Gymnasium, and an athletic field.
