Holy Cross High School is a High school, located in Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

History of Holy Cross

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 both of these traditions in Catholic coeducation, the only one of its kind in Jefferson County. [However, this was not the first coeducational Roman Catholic high school in Louisville. The previously all-boys' Flaget High School merged with the all-girls Loretto High School in 1973 at the Flaget campus, but that school closed permanently in 1974. cite web|url=http://www.courier-journal.com/reweb/community/placetime/city-shawnee.html |title=Places in Time: Shawnee |first=John C. |last=Pillow |publisher="Courier-Journal Homes"| accessdate=2008-02-16] This alternative for Catholic family education is an Archdiocesan High School accredited by the State of Kentucky.
