First graduation for Holy Cross Preparatory Academy

H

oly Cross Preparatory Academy, Delran, graduated its first class of 75 seniors during commencement exercises held June 1. Reflecting on the class, David Moffa, school admissions director said, “This class has seen it all when it comes to Holy Cross – all of the trials and successes.” He was referring to the school’s 2018 opening as a private Catholic school under the leadership of William J. Stonis. Holy Cross Academy closed as a diocesan school in June 2018, and a month later on July

1, converted into a private entity – Holy Cross Preparatory Academy – guided with the help of alumni. “We are extraordinarily proud to call them the first graduating class of the new, independent Holy Cross,” Moffa said.
