Students in grades 5-8 may participate in our sports program consisting of baseball, basketball, volleyball, cross country, track, and cheerleading. Teams at the 5th and 6th grade levels are considered learning years when fundamentals are taught. Teams at the 7th and 8th grade levels or at the "varsity" level are more competitive. We are members of the Illinois Elementary School Association and abide by its regulations. Our sports teams have successfully competed at the regional, sectional, and state levels.
Students at all grade levels participate in a learning-focused program of Physical Education. These classes are based on child development and follow the guidelines established by the National Standards for Physical Education. Holy Cross is a laboratory setting for the University of Illinois kinesiology education students.
