The mission of the program is to foster in our students global awareness, sensitivity and responsibility. The vision of the program is to teach students to communicate effectively in another language and to sharpen their language skills in order to succeed at the next higher level.

In grades K-5 students will begin with an introduction to simple vocabulary through songs and basic grammar and language. Progressing through this basic program will prepare Holy Cross Academy students with a foundation for composition, speech, and literature at the middle school level.

Initially, instruction in Spanish will be offered as part of the basic curriculum. However, the utilization of community and university resources will be accessed to offer at least one another language as a possible elective in 2013-2014.
