Holy Cross High School (Flushing)
Holy Cross High School is an all-boys Roman Catholic high school in Flushing, in the New York City borough of Queens. Founded in 1955, the school was chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York and accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Located within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, it is sponsored by the Brothers of Holy Cross. There is a 98% college placement rate. The School's teams are called the Holy Cross Knights, the school's arch rivals are the Saint Francis Prep High School Terriers. Since they are both located on Francis Lewis Boulevard approximately 2 and a 1/2 miles apart, when they play each other the game is called the Battle of the Boulevard. The school recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary of Founding. In 1979 the school celebrated both its 25th anniversary of founding and the 20th anniversary of its first graduation class. Both events were characterized by a large percentage of alumni and alumni parent involvement. The Office of Alumni Relations and the Development Office were founded during the three-year period leading up to these celebrations during the principalship of John E McGovern, the schools fifth principal (1975-1981). The school was accedited by Middle States during the same period.

“When I see that the nineteenth century has crowned the idolatry of Art with the deification of Love, so that every poet is supposed to have pierced to the holy of holies when he has announced that Love is the Supreme, or the Enough, or the All, I feel that Art was safer in the hands of the most fanatical of Cromwells major generals than it will be if ever it gets into mine.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
