Providing a low-cost, safe, supportive, & academically rigorous environment for children in Park City.
Holy Cross Ministries' School Readiness Program:
Because we believe that everyone deserves a bright future, Holy Cross Ministries began a School Readiness Program in 2009 for 3-5 year old children. Our bilingual teachers help level the playing field by helping students learn fundamental pre-literacy skills, classroom behavior, and positive self-esteem. Parents also are active participants in the program. Through volunteerism, guest speakers, and as classroom aids parents learn about the school system, best parenting practices, available community resources, and how they can become the number one advocate and supporter of their child’s education.
The impact of your donation:
After the news of an unexpected high risk pregnancy, Rosa* was unable to continue working to support her family. With two young boys and the loss of her mother-in-law, Rosa and her husband were struggling financially to support their family. Thanks to the generosity of donors, like you, Holy Cross Ministries was able to give both of her sons a scholarship for the School Readiness Program and their family received free food and supplies for the new baby girl. In Rosa's own words, "Holy Cross has been more than a school for my children, it has been a blessing for my family and we give thanks for it."
After only one year in the program, both of her sons are speaking more English, and have shown significant improvements on their test scores. We encourage you to contribute to this kind of impact in the Park City community.
