For 60 years Holy Cross of San Antonio has maintained a tradition of excellence in preparing its students for the world’s challenges by never educating the mind at the expense of the heart. Building on this tradition this year, we continuously push our students to be model citizens in every aspect of their lives and our students never disappoint us.
Our Dual Credit Experience with Our Lady of the Lake University has flourished. We currently have 17 students who earned 51 college credit hours in the fall and will be enrolled in the spring. We look forward to the growth of this academic program which provides our students with college credit while still in high school.
The robotics team has once again competed at the state level. The team earned a state berth by finishing as a top-five team in the San Antonio area. They traveled to The University of Texas at Dallas to compete with over 75 of the best teams in Texas. The team’s 18th place finish at the state competition made them the highest ranking private school in San Antonio.
Our athletic program had much to be proud of this fall semester. The varsity volleyball team earned its fourth consecutive district championship with an undefeated district record. Our team played for the state championship but came up short in the fifth set with a score of 14-16. The football team represented the school well with an 8-4 record and a trip to the second round of the playoffs as the area champion.
