Welcome to the Home of the Crusaders!

Holy Cross School, established in 1929, is one of the oldest Catholic elementary schools in Indiana.  Founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross, the school was built even before the church building was established.  The Holy Cross priests and brothers recognized the importance of a school in their new parish.  Holy Cross School was to be a place where faith could be taught, nurtured, and practiced freely.  For over 75 years Holy Cross School has endured and prospered, standing as a testimony to the faith, hope, and courage of 'west side' South Bend immigrants.

Today within a culture that often seems to glorify violence, encourage greed, and promote self-indulgence, it is more important than ever to offer an alternative education experience to our children.  At Holy Cross School, our children are taught that they have a responsibility to respect all human life, care for the less fortunate, and be stewards of God's many gifts.

We believe Catholic Education invites each child to develop a personal relationship with Christ by receiving a foundation in the doctrines and practices of the Roman Catholic faith.

We believe that the parents/guardians are the primary educators of their children.

We believe that every child should experience spiritual, academic, and physical growth each day.

We believe each student is unique and should receive an education suited to his or her personal growth patterns.
