Welcome Future Lancer!

At Holy Cross Preparatory Academy, we have an innovative curriculum that exceeds the standards set by schools in the region.


We offer the most college credit courses of any private school in South Jersey, incorporate laptops and technology into everyday learning, and use collegiate block scheduling that mimics the educational profile of most colleges and universities.  Alongside all of our advancements, we remain faithful to our Catholic identity, our religiously inclusive environment, and our mission to develop young men and women into life-long learners.


You have prepared them for high school.  Let us prepare them for college and beyond.​
