Welcome Guidance Counselors to Holy Cross College!
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Holy Cross College. We would like to introduce you to the value of a Holy Cross College education. Our tuition is among the lowest of residential Catholic liberal arts colleges in the nation. What's more, once a student enrolls they are eligible for the Tuition Lock which guarantees that their tuition will not increase during continuous full-time enrollment. We offer many scholarship opportunities that include need-based, academic excellence, leadership, service and ministry, as well as athletic scholarships.
What kind of student would be best served by a small Catholic liberal arts college?
Our curriculum offers an experiential, relationship-based liberal arts program. Every student completes service learning in the community, an internship in their career field, a three week global immersion experience and a senior Capstone project. To learn more about our dynamic, experiential core, academics, or student life, start on our home page and look around.
We find that many students blossom in our environment. They become leaders, volunteers and active in a large variety of extracurricular activities including student government, intercollegiate athletics, service work and campus ministry.
Our graduates have gone on to success in business, education, politics, and non-profit management. Many have pursued graduate education in law, psychology, international relations, and business.
Our students come from around the globe. Each year, at least 30 states and 15 foreign countries are represented in our student body. Students make friends easily here because our focus is on building community. Students often develop close mentor relationships with faculty and staff because they see each other almost daily.
Students rarely miss class, because most classes have fewer than 20 student and involve active discussions. Tutoring and extra help are readily available because faculty maintain weekly office hours. The 13-to-one student/teacher ratio means students are known and encouraged by their professors.
Located adjacent to Saint Mary's College and the University of Notre Dame, students can have the best of both worlds—a college community within a university setting. The three CSC (Congregation of Holy Cross) institutions share a common Catholic mission and resources for student to enjoy, such as libraries, marching band, ROTC programs, football game and many student organizations. So, even though our immediate community is small, our neighborhood is as exciting as any major university with opportunities to match.
We invite you to bookmark our website for those students who you think would be a good fit for Holy Cross. Thank you.
