Located on the West Bank of the Mississippi River minutes from downtown New Orleans, Our Lady of Holy Cross College is one of the South's most unique educational experiences. The College was founded in 1916 as a Ministry of the Marianites of Holy Cross, and was created to educate and prepare teachers for work in the many schools the Marianites were opening across South Louisiana. The College's continued unwavering connection to the beliefs of the Marianite Sisters and its roots in educating those who would eventually teach others are both part of the foundation that makes the OLHCC experience so special. For our students, this means smaller classes, a faith-based atmosphere and more personal attention from a generous, responsive team of professionals. It means collaborating in an exciting, entrepreneurial environment where the focus is always excellence. It means the support of a compassionate, caring faculty and staff all dedicated to making sure you get the most out of your educational experience.
