Need NPOV language[edit]

The intro to this article reads like it's taken straight from the school's self-promotional literature. It should be re-written to be more encyclopedic and less POV... Valerius Tygart (talk) 15:21, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

In your history section you have a few statements that are not quite right. The Upton Street campus closed in the late 1950s not the mid. I was a boarding student at HCA as we called it from 1949 until 1955 when I transferred to Sidwell Friends School. When I was graduated in 1958, Holy Cross was still on Upton Street. It should be noted that during WWII Holy Cross accepted boarding students due to the needs of working mothers during the War, and continued until the school moved.

Dumbarton College was affiliated with Holy Cross and physically connected to it.

The facility was sold to Howard University Law School. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.56.208.60 (talk) 04:59, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

This is an article that truly deserves a B-grade. If it were to be a good-article, there must be improvements in some sections, such as history.--(Wikipedian1234 (talk) 22:01, 26 April 2008 (UTC))
