Welcome to Holy Cross Matriculation Hr. Sec. School

The Lord God is my strength. And he will set my feet like those of the stag. And He the victor, will lead me beyond my high places while singing psalms.

Habakkuk 3:19

School is a place of growing and finding one’s true self. The beginning of the New Academic Year always holds such excitements and promises, and for us it is an annual rite of passage where we open our doors and share with you our hopes and dreams for the coming year.

Greetings to you and a warm welcome back to an exciting new school year 2019-2020!

A  time and opportunity to begin anew. A time to re define our goals and determine how we will spend our time, energy, and resources in the service of our students.

First and foremost, Holy Cross is a place where we build relationship and create a sense of belonging for all our students. Our second simple, foundational vision is that our school is a place where all students make academic growth striving ahead to excellence.Read More

Warm greetings from Holy Cross Matric Hr. Sec. School.

I came that you may have life and life in abundance [JESUS].

48 years ago the sisters of the cross set their foot in this soil to work with God, to bring abundant life to the people of God (Vellore).

When I look back at the life and mission of our Holy Cross Matric. Hr. Sec. School Vellore, I am humbled by the way, God’s abundant grace has established, sustained and led us with significant success, growth and development.

“Ignorance is the cause of evil in the society” Awareness and realization of this fact, triggered the spirit of commitment, to enlighten the young, in a simple, God fearing woman – Claudine Echernier. It is through her, the mission of educating the young people, who were less fortunate began by the “Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod” in France in 1832, and from there to Amaravati, Maharastra in India. Slowly our sisters extended their contribution in the field of education to south India as well. Thus Vellore was fortunate to receive a group of 3 enthusiastic Sisters in Sathuvachari in the year 1974, who were welcomed and blessed by Most. Rev. Anthony Muthu, D.D. then Bishop of Vellore. In the same year 14 pupils were enrolled in the kindergarten.Read More
