Vision, Mission, & Sponsorship

Through a challenging, college-preparatory curriculum offered in a faith-based, multicultural environment and the integration of work experience in a professional setting, motivated students strive to reach their highest potential and become faith-filled, socially responsible women and men who will take the lead in creating a more just society and a more hopeful future for themselves and others.

A Catholic, coeducational, college-preparatory secondary school serving Indianapolis, Providence Cristo Rey High School offers a transformational educational experience to students with economic need.
The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, are a congregation of Roman Catholic women religious who minister throughout the United States, in Taiwan, and China. Founded by Saint Mother Theodore Guerin in 1840, the congregation has a mission of being God’s Providence in the world by committing to performing works of love, mercy, and justice in service among God’s people.
