Holy Cross School is located in the south of the Okanagan Valley in Penticton, British Columbia. It is a Catholic K-8 elementary school of the Diocese of Nelson and is an accredited and classified Group 1 independent school of The Ministry of Education in the province of British Columbia.
Holy Cross School was established to provide parents of the Penticton parishes of St. John Vianney and St. Ann’s, as well as the parish of Holy Child in Summerland, with the unique opportunity for their child to receive a Christ-centered education. The diocesan administrators and school staff, with the support of parents and the local pastoral team, are dedicated to providing a learning environment that facilitates the spiritual development of every student and achieves the essential academic, social, emotional and physical growth needed to live and work in today’s world.
We work hard to create an environment in which a student can work to their potential with a minimum of distractions in order to focus on their learning.
We are blessed with families and students who share an enthusiasm for learning, and who strive to live the virtues as set out by our Lord.
The school has been recognized by the Fraser Institute as the top, or one of the top, elementary schools in the Province of British Columbia for the last several years.
You can find our school by proceeding behind St. Ann’s Parish to the rear of the parking lot.
