Who We Are
Holy Cross Lutheran Academy is a Christian based early childhood learning center that provides half-day educational programs in addition to morning and afternoon childcare for children ages two through kindergarten. Our purpose is to guide and support each child’s social, emotional, academic, physical, and spiritual development.
What We Do
Our commitment is to provide an engaging learning environment where children flourish and parents feel confident about their children’s safety as well as the strong academic foundation they receive. Children are provided with hands-on experiences that broaden their understanding of the world around them while developing critical thinking skills.
What We Offer
Children enrolled in Holy Cross Lutheran Academy have the opportunity to grow and explore with us from age 2 through kindergarten.
We offer academic programs as well as exceptional year-round before and after school childcare for families looking for a loving, nurturing, and engaging environment for their children. We use “Core Knowledge” for all ages to provide children with the solid academic foundation needed for successful learning in the primary years and beyond.
What makes us unique is the strong, Biblical foundation children receive during their time at our school. Our goal is to nurture their faith by sharing God’s Word, and emphasizing His love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness.
Our Academic Programs
Preschool Prep is intended to help children achieve mastery of autonomy skills, which include toilet training, communication, socialization, independence, movement and coordination, and early academic skills.
This is a fun and exciting time for exploration! We believe children learn by interacting with the world around them. Children are not required to be fully potty-trained and may begin as early as 2 years old.
Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten are designed to help children get ready for kindergarten. Children are provided with a variety of materials and experiences.
We emphasize on practicing skills in the following areas: language and literacy, mathematics, scientific reasoning, visual and performing arts, communication, social studies, time and spatial relationships, and movement and coordination. We have carefully selected curriculum that supports developmental practices and prepares children for success.
Transitional Kindergartenare exceptional academic programs that adhere to state standards with the added benefit of a small class size of 12 students taught by an experienced, credentialed teacher. All curriculum choices support current core standards for TK and kindergarten.
Children develop confidence as they learn critical thinking, reasoning, communication, interpersonal, technology, and academic skills. Physical fitness and coordination are important components of the program as are visual and performing arts.
In addition, we offer a loving Christian environment where the Gospel is shared, and parents and guardians partner with teachers in their child's learning and development.
