History of Holy Cross
Our community began worshiping together as The Church of the Holy Cross in 1967. As the parish and greater community grew, the need for a parish school was felt. In September 1986, Holy Cross Catholic School opened its doors to 128 kindergarten to sixth-grade students in the former Valley View school building purchased from the Shawnee Mission School District.
We soon outgrew our original building. In the summer of 1999, construction began to renovate the building, convert the old gymnasium into a multipurpose room with a new kitchen, and build a new gymnasium and three classrooms. We also made the entire building handicapped-accessible and renovated the building to the east of the main school, which housed our Early Education Center. In 2010, all of the school building windows were replaced, and the air conditioning was upgraded due to a generous donation from two school families.
In June 2021, we relocated Early Education to the main school building, uniting the school community.
We currently have an enrollment of 200 children in preschool through eighth grade.
