School Profile


We are a Catholic high school in the Holy Cross tradition.

We celebrate our diversity, value each person and welcome one another with the hospitality of Christ.

As a family of learners, anchored in gospel values, we empower each other to grow spiritually, develop intellectually and reach out in service to others.

Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, taught that education of the heart is as important as education of the mind. Hoban is a Christian community where educators in the faith lead students to mature physically, academically, emotionally and spiritually. The Hoban philosophy is to instill in graduates the competence to see and the courage to act.

Hoban has always endeavored to ensure equity and diversity. It serves students with a variety of abilities and backgrounds and unites them into a community where the gifts and talents of each person are celebrated. To meet the varied needs of its students, the school offers a comprehensive course of studies as well as a wide array of athletic and cocurricular activities.

Through their studies, Hoban students develop a knowledge of their faith, and are motivated to a life of prayer, spiritual growth and participation. An active campus ministry program and a program of Christian service instill a sense of compassion and a willingness to serve those in need and less fortunate.
