on whose territory we pray, learn, play and work.

ABOUT OUR SCHOOL   

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Holy Cross is a vibrant learning community serving students from Kindergarten to Grade Six.  We are a proud part of the St. Patrick’s High School Family of Schools with deep community roots and a strong community spirit. Holy Cross promotes responsibility, respect, perseverance and academic excellence in a safe learning environment.  We recognize that all people are created in the image and likeness of God and have the right to be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness. Holy Cross School strives to develop in all a growth mindset, which values and celebrates each individual contribution based on respect, peaceful living, and the teachings of

Jesus Christ.



OUR HISTORY

Holy Cross School opened the year of Canada's Centennial in 1967. In our infancy, Holy Cross was for students from Kindergarten through Grade 8.  As we grew, our Intermediate students moved to St. Peter's and St. Patrick's Junior High Schools.  Today, Holy Cross is a K-6 school whose students move onto St. Patrick's High School for their Grade 7-12 instruction.

Proudly located next to Holy Cross Catholic Church and Mooney's Bay, we have been proudly serving Ottawa's Catholic community for over fifty years.

In 1999, Holy Cross amalgamated with St. Victor's Catholic School.  At that time in Ontario, municipalities, hospitals, and school boards amalgamated in an effort to ensure more efficient and equitable access to provincially funded services.

Today, Holy Cross is a tight-knit, Christ-centered community that strives to provide a warm, welcoming, and inclusive learning environment.  Our objective is to support our students as they grow spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially.  We provided opportunities and challenges for our students within a 21st-century learning environment that promotes growth and success.
