Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Holy Cross Lutheran Christian Day School is an extension of the ministry of Holy Cross Lutheran Church. The school exists to provide a quality Christian education through the teaching of a complete basic curriculum and the Christian faith. Holy Cross believes that God has made us His children and heirs through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As heirs of God we are now free to live new lives in Christ. Holy Cross Christian Day School exists to describe and demonstrate this new life in Christ to the students, parents, and community we serve. We believe that God's word, the bible, is the guideline for sharing what new life in Christ means to those that we serve."
