Holy Cross Elementary School
Holy Cross Elementary is a kindergarten through eighth grade school serving Holy Cross parish in the heart of historic Latonia, Kentucky. The current structure was built in 1914. Our school was formed in 1891 and was staffed by Benedictine sisters. The Benedictine values of hospitality, community, and love of neighbors is still evident at Holy Cross today.
We share a campus with Holy Cross Church and Holy Cross High School, as well as the Holy Cross Learning Academy preschool. Our campus is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Students grow in faith through our twice weekly masses and the receiving of sacraments in our beautiful church. Our elementary school shares a large gymnasium, a spirit shop, and a cafeteria with the high school. Being neighbors with our district high school gives the elementary students access to a wide range of activities and sports. The Holy Cross Learning Academy features programs for children ages 2 to 5, offering families one place to educate children from preschool through high school graduation.
