Principal Letter and Bio

Principal - Carney

In 1989 my husband, Dan, was teaching the D.A.R.E. program at Holy Cross and I was pregnant with our first child.  I attended the December D.A.R.E. graduation ceremony with him and was impressed with the disciplined and well-mannered students.   As I walked through the halls of Holy Cross, it was evident the Catholic faith was guiding the school.  When Dan and I returned home that day, we both agreed our children would attend Holy Cross.

Our three sons, Stephen, Brendan, and Jordan attended and graduated from Holy Cross Catholic School.  The excellent spiritual and academic formation they received continues to serve them well.  At each grade level, my sons were held to high academic standards and encouraged to strive for their personal best in all subjects.

Dan and I were married at Holy Cross in 1989 and have been parishioners ever since.  We enjoy the loving community and see Holy Cross as an extension of our own family.
I am humbled and honored to serve Holy Cross as principal.  I would be happy to share the many blessing Holy Cross has to offer your child.

God bless you,
Allison Carney
