When I think back to my Holy Cross education – and I often do – I realize that the time I spent with the Sisters of the Holy Cross and my extraordinary classmates was an incredible gift and one that has served me well every day since I walked out of these doors on June 3, 1966.
The teachers and staff at Holy Cross continue to have a personal impact on me today.
I don’t think I knew, while a student, how much The Academy of the Holy Cross would make such a positive difference in my life.
Holy Cross has claimed me both on ends—on Upton Street and on Strathmore Avenue! How can that be?
Many happy memories come flooding back when I remember my years at Holy Cross. One memory however, stands out above all others on a major scale.
My four years at the Academy were brightened with Sister Jovanna checking up on me periodically and sharing words of encouragement and love.
The faculty, staff, administration, and Catholic values and lessons made me feel I was cared for four years.
While at Holy Cross, I loved math and science classes above all else. The guidance and support I got at AHC really put my life on a path to achievements that I would not have discovered on my own.
