"The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values"

- William S. Burroughs


Since the school's founding in 1862, the generosity and interest of the community has fostered Holy Cross School's distinctive mission to serve the students of Santa Cruz and beyond.

To give to Holy Cross School is to support our mission to support the spiritual, intellectual, and moral development of our students. Your gift, regardless of its size, helps to bolster academic programs and the social-emotional development of our students.

Parents and alumni, faculty and staff, foundations and friends all play a vital role in our ability to prepare our Holy Cross students for the hope of tomorrow. Your generosity truly makes a difference.

Please consider donating to the 2023-2024 Annual Appeal.

In friendship,
Anthony Schipper - Principal of Holy Cross School
