The Ave Crux Program

Accepting applications from current 5th, 6th, and 7th graders for
Summer of 2020: June 14 - July 9th (Holiday Observed July 5th)

In the tradition of Holy Cross, the Ave Crux summer program is a mission-driven academic and social enrichment program for middle school students who are admitted the summer prior to their 6th grade year using our need-based criteria. Participants gather annually at Saint Francis during the summer to further their academic studies and personal development. For one month each summer, students are given hands on instruction in English, Math, and Science to prepare them for the rigorous academic environment of a college preparatory high school. Furthermore, students are given ample time both in community and individually to reinforce academic confidence, self-esteem, and resilience.
