Meet the Principal


Doctor Mary Rose Worrilow

Welcome to Holy Cross School!


My name is Dr. Mary Rose Worrilow.  I have been the principal of Holy Cross School since July of 2019.  I bring to the table 20 years of administrative experience and 8 years of classroom teaching experience.  Education is my passion and I truly enjoy my position as principal.

We are a Catholic School located in Springfield, PA, our school educates students from grades Pre-K 3 through 8th.  Our curriculum is designed to educate the child spiritually, academically, socially, and emotionally.  It is based on Common Core standards and the State of Pennsylvania standards. In addition to our regular academic subjects, we also have art, music, technology, and physical education.  We attend Mass once a month as a school.  Religious training continues throughout the grades.  Students attend Mass, go to confession, and work on service projects to help those in need.  Catholic students who are parishioners of the parish receive their sacraments as a class.

Technology is incorporated into the curriculum.  Our teachers now have whiteboards in each room to enhance their instruction. We have a new PA system and have upgraded our Internet. Our students are now one-to-one with the Chromebooks. Each teacher now has a laptop to use in their classroom.

Our faculty is very dedicated to our students.  The teachers continue to attend staff development presentations to enhance their teaching and keep current on new teaching practices.

Parents receive weekly communication from me as well as emails throughout the week if needed.  I also communicate by text and voice when appropriate.

We were recently recognized as an Archdiocesan School of Distinction for 2019.  Our students showed growth in every grade level tested in the content areas of the Terra Nova.  Our growth was 100%.  We strive to keep the children engaged in meaningful learning in a safe, secure, and caring environment.

If you are interested in our school, please call Mrs. Spurrier our tuition/enrollment manager at 610-626-1709 for further information or to arrange a tour.

Thank you for stopping by!
