Hoban is sponsored by the Brothers of Holy Cross, the first order of teaching brothers established in the United States. The Holy Cross educational tradition in this country dates from the founding of the University of Notre Dame in 1842.
Hoban students are challenged to live up to the ideals of the Catholic faith through religious studies classes, sacramental opportunities, retreats and Christian service programs. This spiritual dimension complements the educational process, going beyond instruction that merely transmits specific knowledge and skills. A Holy Cross education fosters the values, attitudes and behaviors necessary for individuals to make a real difference in the world.
Education is about wholeness and relationships: the relationship between mind and heart, between scholarship and service, between students and teachers, between schools and society.
While we prepare useful citizens for society, we shall likewise do our utmost to prepare citizens for eternal life.
- Blessed Basil Moreau
founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross
