As a school Accredited by the Lutheran Association of Schools and the Indiana Department of Education, Holy Cross offers students the opportunity to participate in a curriculum grounded in a commitment to a Christian way of life. Our facilities allow students to explore the arts, academics, and athletics. We want to draw students into a world of unlimited possibilities. We measure our success by our students. We succeed when we see our students living out the values we share, serving from the heart, and not just making history, but changing it.

Campus Tours

The campus of Holy Cross occupies over 7 acres. There is a large, fenced-in playground as well as an expansive athletic field. The gym features a wooden floor and bleachers to seat 500 people. The school is connected to Holy Cross Lutheran Church. This physical connection between church and school serves to reinforce the spiritual connection to Christ that is the head and heart of our Christian education. Other features of the campus include hot meals and a library with over 16,000 titles, as well as science and computer labs with Wi-Fi.

There is no better way to get to know a community than to experience it first hand. Join us for an individual campus visit. A campus visit includes a tour of our campus and an opportunity to meet with an admissions officer. Individual campus visits are scheduled on an individual basis by calling the school.

Join us at our open houses (which are held periodically throughout the school year). This is a great chance to meet our students, teachers, and administrators. We designed this day for families like you to become more familiar with Holy Cross.
