Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Holy Cross Convent High School is an all girls' school located in K'Villa, Thane, Maharashtra, India, which was founded in 1964. The medium of instruction is English. The school houses classes from kindergarten up to class ten. It is one of the premier primary and secondary educational institutions in the Greater Mumbai (Bombay) area and has a widespread alumnae network. In 1839, Mother Claudine Echernier founded the Congregation of the Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod in France with the help of Friar Peter Marie Mermier (who founded the Congregation of the Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales, known worldwide for its Salesian Convent Schools). The Sisters of the Cross spread to India in 1886 propagating their charitable educational goals for women in Amravati and then spreading to other parts of the country - Kolkata (Calcutta) and Vishakhapatnam amongst many places. Holy Cross Convent High School in Thane was founded in 1964 and while it quickly shed its character as purely an institution of charity, a true charity school for children in need of special care was built in the 1990s for which all the students raised significant amounts of money.
