The cornerstone of a Holy Cross education has always been “engaging the whole man: mind and heart, body and soul.” This is truer than ever as we start the journey from “Boys to Men” as early as pre-kindergarten. Our older boys are taught that the challenge facing any young man is to learn habits of the mind and habits of the heart:
- The competence to see and the courage to act
- To think critically
- To make informed choices
- To take risks
- To own the consequences of his actions
For our youngest boys, these challenges come in the form of hundreds of exciting discoveries in Primary School. Critical thinking, smart choices, risk-taking and responsibility are taught under the careful supervision of our faculty. We focus on nourishing children’s appetite for knowledge and spirit of discovery while building mutual respect and sensitivity.
