I feel the school has several great professors who are very helpful and knowledgeable. However, the academic standards are too low, students should be held to higher standards, and the workload should increase.

Holy Cross School of Theology has a dedicated faculty and staff who are genuinely interested in helping you attain both academic excellence and practical experience for the field of theology. The community on campus is its greatest asset as the totality of the community is willing and eager to help each other and to support one another. There are also a multiplicity of opportunities to be involved on campus and to fine-tune one's leadership skills as well. Though there are some setbacks such as the small size of the student body and the absence of some newer technologies on campus, it remains a beacon of academic excellence in its field and is truly a one of a kind institute in its own right.

Holy Cross offers the only Orthodox Christian Theological Studies program for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. This makes it a unique place to learn Christian Theology from the perspective of eastern Christian tradition--typically not well known in America. Being the only seminary in the country also provides a big benefit in that so many remarkable people come to visit the school, making it a great place to network and get involved with the Orthodox Christian community. The school also offers a wide variety of interesting historical, theological, and pastoral classes. However, sometimes the overall effectiveness of classes is marred by the fact that they are taught by faculty members who have extensively busy schedules or are a bit lacking in course organization. Overall, though, Holy Cross has provided me with a great educational opportunity so far. I have learned an astounding amount in one year's time and appreciated regular access to a full experience of chapel life. Finally, but certainly not least, the welcoming and friendly community on campus is top-notch! The student community is great and very close while faculty/administration is generally very accessible, helpful, and caring.
