2019-2020 Parish Theme:
Live by the Spirit, Walk by the Spirit
Dear Holy Cross Academy Families,
Earlier this afternoon, Governor Northam ordered all public and private schools in the Commonwealth to close for the remainder of the school year. I just completed a conference call with the leadership in the Diocese, and all Diocesan schools will follow this mandate.
Holy Cross Academy will continue delivering its distance education through the remainder of the school year. I am conducting a conference call with faculty and staff tomorrow morning so we can discuss best practices of our E-learning.
I will continue to keep the lines of communication open and will fill in the many questions we all have as soon as I have the correct information. We are all in this difficult situation together and will make decisions based on what is in the best interest of learners.
Although this is an especially trying time, I feel blessed to have such a talented and dedicated faculty and supportive parent group. Please join me in praying for our school, that we find comfort in our Catholic faith. And pray for our students, that they continue growing intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and socially. You are all in my prayers.

Have a blessed day,

Steve Fry

At Holy Cross Academy, we are guided by the spirit of Saint Francis de Sales as we dedicate ourselves to: 

  • Create an atmosphere of prayer and reliance on our heavenly Father;
  • Spread the message of Jesus in our families and our community by treating all persons with respect and showing reverence for the gift of God in each one;
  • Build up the Spirit-filled faith community within Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception Parish;
  • Serve those in need in our local community and in the Missions through an awareness of our global responsibility to all humanity;
  • Develop the whole child: spiritually, emotionally, academically and physically;
  • Promote academic excellence by challenging all our students to recognize their gifts and fulfill their God-given potential.
