About the College

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Holy Cross College, Ryde.

Holy Cross seeks to offer a quality Catholic education that maximises the potential of every boy in our care.

Holy Cross College was founded in 1891 by the Patrician Brothers. The charism of the Patrician Brothers is marked by a commitment to seeing the face of Christ in all we meet in our daily lives. The school remains committed to this Patrician ideal. It translates into school life that

  • Welcomes all, seeking to build a community of hospitality and inclusion
  • Expects high standards in academic work and student behaviour
  • Challenges all in the school community to develop a real spirit of justice that makes a difference to the way we live our lives
  • Celebrates and sanctifies life and everything in school life that is life giving.

With expansive grounds, heritage buildings and a long and proud sporting and academic tradition, Holy Cross continues to serve the Sydney Catholic community as an outstanding day school for boys, Years 7–12.

For current students and parents, you will find the school newsletter Crossroads, the College calendar, important school information and as an entry point into the school intranet site.

For past parents, staff and students, you will find here a way to keep in touch with the dynamic changes at the College.
