Educating the whole person includes caring for every student’s well-being. As a community, we are committed to ensuring that everyone at Holy Cross feels healthy and happy — not only physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Mind, Body, Spirit
Our approach to wellness reflects the Ignatian principle of cura personalis — care for the whole person — and encompasses every dimension of students’ lives. At Holy Cross, this takes many forms. It’s the academic mentoring and guidance we offer for every student, working to tailor their learning to match their personal abilities, desires and goals. It’s the emphasis we place on physical fitness, encouraging all members of our community to lead active and healthy lifestyles. It’s the attention we give to diet and eating habits, making registered dietitians available for one-to-one consultations with all students — not just those with dietary restrictions. And it’s the care we take with their emotional and physical needs, offering a robust suite of services that ensure every student, staff, and faculty member is fully supported during their time at Holy Cross.
