Brookline, MA – Hellenic College Holy Cross (HCHC) announces today that classes will begin for the Fall 2020 semester on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, with students expected to return to campus by Friday, September 11, 2020. Student Orientation will take place on Saturday September 12, 2020. As usual, HCHC will be closed for the Feast of the Celebration of the Holy Cross on Monday, September 14, 2020. Although no definitive answer has been determined yet about whether classes will resume on campus or remain online, moving back the start date for orientation and classes by two and half weeks provides school officials with the added time needed to make this determination, based on government directive and advice. In order to accommodate a condensed schedule like this, HCHC will remain open on the Monday and Tuesday of Thanksgiving week for classes and hold final exams up until December 22, 2020.
