Educating Hearts & Minds Since 1959

Mission

Saint Edmond’s Academy, an Independent Catholic school, educates the hearts and minds of boys in the Holy Cross tradition from JK to eighth grade. Our heritage incorporates contemporary thought with individualized instruction, a challenging 21st century curriculum, and a focus on the core values of responsibility, independence, self-esteem, integrity, and a sense of community.

History

Reverend Jacques Dujarie organized the Brothers of Holy Cross, originally called the Brothers of Saint Joseph, as a teaching community in 1820 France. In 1837, Blessed Basil Moreau associated these Brothers with a society of auxiliary priests to establish the Congregation of Holy Cross, a religious community of priests and brothers. After the establishment of the University of Notre Dame in 1842, the Brothers founded additional schools across the country, adding to other Holy Cross schools in Europe and throughout the world.

Core Values

As a Catholic school, rooted in the traditions of Holy Cross education, we are dedicated to empowering our students with values for life. From a young age, students develop an understanding of five core values distilled from the writings of Blessed Basil Moreau- Responsibility, Integrity, Independence, Positive Self-Esteem, and Building Community. Students learn to respect themselves and those around them, embracing the likeness and differences of all.
