We prepare teachers and school leaders to educate the whole person in the tradition of the Holy Cross, which began two centuries ago.  As the premier program in the Portland metropolitan area, we partner with over 100 schools and 18 school systems, sharing the belief that education is a matter of justice, and that gaps in achievement and social opportunity can be addressed by skilled educators formed by mission.

Every heart. Every mind. Every child.
