Mission Statement

Enlightened by the Holy Family of Nazareth, we at Holy Cross Catholic School provide an advanced and faith-based educational experience with an emphasis on the Catholic family values unique to Northern New Mexico. 


The Vision of Holy Cross Catholic School is to be the premier Catholic Elementary School of Northern New Mexico that prepares students to succeed in their academic, professional and spiritual vocation while utilizing community resources which allow us to excel in the global community and build strong faith-based families for our society.   


The philosophy of Holy Cross Catholic School is to provide students with a creative and respectful learning environment, always striving for academic excellence and intellectual growth in the atmosphere of a Catholic Christian Community at work, at worship and at play.  By living and learning the Gospel values of faith, service, courage, justice, hope, love and reconciliation, the goal is to transform a person of virtue into a person of Christ.  We honor the dignity and importance of each person and we respect and strive for the autonomy, which enables each person to be whatever he or she is called by God to be.
