Athletics as a vehicle
for growth

Holy Cross offers a comprehensive physical education program taught by a P.E. specialist teaching all grades. Holy Cross Athletic programs and Hockey & Basketball Academies focus on growth across all areas of the curriculum and school life by: 

  • Creating an encouraging environment.

  • Learning self-discipline.

  • Developing character and integrity. 

  • Improving athletic performance, leadership and teamwork.


In addition to grade-level physical education programs designed to develop the abilities of each student at Holy Cross School, an extracurricular sports program offers the opportunity for boys and girls to enhance their experience through participating in a  range of competitive activities with other schools in the district.

Sporting Excellence

Sports Academies

Holy Cross School is finishing up its second year of offering sports academies for our grade 6-8 students. The academies have been successful expansions to our P.E. program, allowing students to expand their skills and knowledge and practice extensively under the guidance of experienced coaches.

Hockey Skills Academy

Partnership with Penticton Best

In partnership with Okanagan Hockey Group Holy Cross School is offering a Hockey Skills Academy that specializes in performance training and skill development of student athletes during school hours.
The program is offered for male and female athletes in Grade 6, 7 and 8 attending Holy Cross School.

Sports Academy fees are kept to a minimum to encourage all students to take part and this approach will continue as we go forward. As always, commitment and follow through by our students are crucial in the continuing success of our sports academies.


The purpose of this program is to pursue athletic potential, build personal character and to develop an attitude that hard work and positive values are assets each student can carry into all aspects of their lives.

The program will consist of 36 on ice and 8 off ice sessions beginning September 2024.
