The history of the Holy Cross of Mintal dates way back to June 1959 when a priest of a foreign Mission Society of Quebec (PME) began the direction of the school. Reverend Father Marcel Lavoie, PME was the school first director. The school had only three teachers and used the ground floor of the parish convent as their temporary classroom. Later, because of the demand of Catholic education, three classrooms were constructed in 1960. Then in 1963-1964, the school was given to the permanent management to the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary. Holy Cross of Mintal has been existing and serving the community for more than 50 years with the constant goal to give quality Christian Education to the youth. Such goal has propelled the school community to search and explore possibilities of development to respond to the call for quality Christian Education. Major areas of development such as Instruction, Administrative and Faculty Development, Student Services, and Physical Plant are being done intensely to give quality service to its growing population.
