Holy Cross School opened in 1937 when the Sisters of Mercy welcomed about 100 students and has served thousands of area children from South Portland, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, and surrounding towns in the decades since with a mission of strengthening faith and community while helping students become lifelong learners and creative and critical thinkers.

“Holy Cross School is focused on academic excellence, while nurturing the whole student in faith, empathy, community, and social responsibility,” said Timothy Stebbins, principal of Holy Cross. “I love the school’s character and history. With the help of the entire faculty, staff, and parents at Holy Cross, we are dedicated to helping children grow intellectually, spiritually, socially, and emotionally on a path to becoming confident contributors in society.”
