Message from Mrs. Waters
Welcome to Our Lady of the Cross School!
Here we stand in faith, with our eyes fixed on Jesus!
Our board, administration, faculty, staff, parents and students together create a family that allows for the study and practice of the Catholic faith, while providing a traditional and rigorous academic foundation that allows students to learn and thrive in a safe environment. Our school provides for small class sizes and an education that meets students in this time of pandemic where they are in their educational journey and challenges and encourages them to meet their full potential. We strive to form students of strong character based on Gospel teaching and values.
Our school was established in 2021, in the year of St. Joseph and under the patronage of Mary, Our Lady of the Cross. When the last diocesan school in the county was closed at the end of the 19-20 school year, a void was created, and the community rallied to create a private and independent institution teaching in the Catholic tradition that would reestablish the legacy and tradition of 161 years of Catholic education in Lebanon County. Our family environment truly sets us apart, and there is an atmosphere of compassion and support that exists beyond our simple walls that needs to be experienced in order to be understood.
We invite you to visit and experience Our Lady of the Cross School where we are committed to forming students in faith and reason with the goal that they give witness to Jesus Christ with their lives. We boast an experienced and committed faculty and staff who educate the whole student and recognize him or her as uniquely created in the image and likeness of God, capable of extraordinary things!
Eyes on Jesus,
Mrs. Deb Waters
Head of School
