Catholic Schools develop Christian leaders, responsible citizens and life-long learners.
The formation of our children is first and foremost the responsibility of the parents, and is something that needs to be modeled in our homes. Thankfully, however, the Church has made it possible for parents to work alongside the greater Catholic community in helping shape the Church’s youngest members.
Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Vancouver, as a faith community, are committed to excellence in Catholicity and in all areas that promote the development of the whole child to his or her full potential.
Note: Religious education for children (grades 1-7) attending public schools is via the parish-based PREP (Parish Religious Education Program).
St. Matthew’s Elementary is a faith-based school that emphasizes the importance of home, school and the parish. We work together as a community to bring the children entrusted in our care to walk in the footsteps of Christ.
Holy Cross strives to provide a Christian environment which is safe, caring and respectful. The school is dedicated to an academic program that develops the skills and creativity required to be successful on the path our students choose after graduation.
In order to ensure that students receive a well-rounded education, Holy Cross focuses on the following: Religious Education, Service, Academic Achievement, Athletics and Performing Arts. Students are encouraged to participate in our many service projects not only to help others, but to make a positive change in the world and realize that they are capable of great things even at an early age
Our school motto is “In Hoc Signo Vinces.” At Holy Cross, we believe that with Christ’s help we can conquer any obstacles that we are faced with. We are dedicated to encouraging our students to become socially aware and productive members of society, who will model the Christian values that they have learned during their time at Holy Cross.
