Message from the Principal


Welcome to the Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School website. Holy Cross is an elementary school offering programming in both English and French Immersion to students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade Six. Our mission is to 'LEAD LIKE CHRIST with WISDOM, TRUTH and RESPECT'.

We are located on Algonquin Road in the south end of the city. We are pleased to be on the same campus as St. Benedict School. Although the two schools are completely separate, we celebrate the partnerships that benefit students at both schools.

Holy Cross is proud to offer an education that is rooted in our Catholic faith with the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations and based on the Ontario Curriculum. Our faith is at the core of all that we do. The staff at St. Patrick's Church will continue to support our students, staff and families spiritually as we journey through our Catholic education together.

We are also proud to be a 'Leader in Me' school. We infuse the '7 Habits of Highly Effective People' into all that we do. We believe that every student is capable of learning and that each student can be a leader. We model ourselves after the greatest leader, Jesus.

Parental support is very much appreciated and encouraged. We have a vibrant school council and parent volunteers are always welcome.

Please call 705-586-3686 if you would like to register your child, or if you have questions or concerns. Our school day is from 8:50 a.m. until 3:05 p.m.

Ms.S. Vandruenen


About Holy Cross

In 2008-2009 the Sudbury Catholic District School Board's South/Central family of schools underwent an accommodation review. This process gave rise to the creation of Holy Cross, a state of the art green elementary school in the city's south end, and an expansion of St Benedict Catholic Secondary School. Holy Cross opened in September 2012.
