Holy Cross was founded at Pomfret, Connecticut, in 1937 to educate men for priestly vocation. A decade later, Holy Cross relocated to Brookline, Massachusetts.
Our College is distinguished by an Orthodox Christian ethos that gives meaning and cohesion to all its endeavors. Our students are encouraged to find their vocation, their calling in Christ, in both their studies and in their work. This vocational perspective can inspire students to exercise their professions in distinctive ways that reflect the knowledge and values they acquired here and which aim to improve the lives of their future colleagues, employees, and neighbors.
