at Holy Cross Lutheran School

Our School’s Mission & Vision

Christian Faith and Challenging Academics

The mission of Holy Cross Lutheran School is to provide a Christ-centered, nurturing ministry for children and their families, with an emphasis on academic excellence.


Enrollment eligibility for a class at Holy Cross Lutheran School is based upon a child’s age on September 1 of the school year being registered for, and/or the child’s developmental level. Early enrollment (children younger than the age requirement for a specific program) will not be granted for children in preschool through the first grade. Children may, however, be older than the stated age for a given program, due to parent/teacher assessment of developmental level and program appropriateness.

Application and enrollment information including class offerings and the tuition schedule for the upcoming school year is made available in January. Applications for new students are accepted beginning in mid-January, and class placement is made following re-enrollment of current students and their siblings. The number of new students accepted is dependent upon the number of current students returning. Class sizes are limited, so we maintain a waiting list once a class is full. The waiting list will be contacted in order if openings occur.

Admissions Policy

Holy Cross Lutheran School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.

Statement Against Racism

Racism is a sin and God loves all of His children equally. Racism of any form whether with words or actions will not be tolerated at Holy Cross.
