Welcome to the Holy Cross
Holy Cross Preparatory Academy is pleased to introduce a new method of learning for our students, and a new method of teaching for our faculty - the Lancer Metaverse.
Using state-of-the-art software and virtual reality (VR) headsets, this immersive technology will enable Lancer students to go beyond their physical environment.
The vision for the Lancer Metaverse is to create a network of 3D virtual worlds that our students, teachers, staff, and alumni can access as an addition communication channel for learning, fellowship, and to grow the Lancer community.
Our THANKS to the Baiada Brothers who recently stepped up to fund the start-up investment of hardware and software to implement the Lancer Metaverse to our faculty and students!
Going forward, we need to obtain additional enhancements to help the Lancer Metaverse grow and be successful. We are continuing our campaign to purchase the additional enhancements to

The Lancer Metaverse is an integrated network of 3D virtual worlds. These worlds are accessed through a virtual reality headset, and students and teachers will navigate the metaverse using their eye movements, feedback controllers or voice commands. The headset immerses the student, stimulating what is known as "presence" - which is created by generating the physical sensation of actually being there.
Holy Cross Prep is initially introducing this technology to our STEM program, and will add courses as we learn and progress. We are proud to be leading NJ high schools by introducing this exciting learning tool to our students!
