2016 – 2017 School Year Mission Theme: Building Respect

Each year at ND, there is a different Mission Theme; these themes stem from the philosophy of Holy Cross and make clear the defining attributes of a Holy Cross school.  At the end of four years, students will have experienced all four Mission Themes and thus, will have a strong understanding of their Holy Cross formation.  Many of the Holy Cross High Schools throughout the U.S. have adopted these pillars, further strengthening the cross-geographical Holy Cross connection. 

The four pillars are:

  • Building Respect
  • Educating Hearts and Minds
  • Being Family
  • Bringing Hope
