Holy Cross High School was founded in 1984. Preceded by the all female Angela Merici High School and the all male Bishop David High School, Holy Cross joins the best of these traditions in a Catholic Coeducational high school, the only one of its kind in Jefferson County. The school occupies twenty-three acres of land at 5144 Dixie Highway in southwest Jefferson County. The school building contains classrooms, a fully equipped computer lab, a word processing center, a media classroom, administrative offices, locker rooms for both men and women, an art room, three science labs, a full library/media center, and guidance area. The main building also houses a cafeteria, gymnasium and a chapel. Tennis courts, a field house equipped with weight training facilities and locker space, a softball/baseball complex, a football field, and a track complete the present campus.
