Through a challenging, college and career 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 and career preparatory high school serving Indianapolis, Providence Cristo Rey High School offers a transformational educational experience to students with economic need.


The sponsoring groups of Cristo Rey Network schools ensure that the institutions are Catholic in identity and mission, true to the religious charism of the order, and appropriately governed. The communities have the obligation of developing a local culture that is faithful to the guiding principles of the Cristo Rey spirituality and the Cristo Rey Network Mission Effectiveness Standards.

Providence Cristo Rey High School is sponsored by the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, a congregation of Roman Catholic women religious who minister throughout the United States, 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.

The school pledge was written by the first group of Providence Cristo Rey High School students in 2007. Students recite these words each morning after prayer. 

As members of the Providence Cristo Rey community, we put our confidence in our Provident God who so far has never failed us. We promise to put God first and to strive always to do the right thing. Wherever we are, we will uphold the values, standards and ethics of Providence Cristo Rey High School.


We promise to carry ourselves with pride and professionalism and to be dependable, truthful, trustworthy, polite, honest, respectful and positive. In all that we do, we will put forth every ounce of effort and will strive for excellence.


We promise to take initiative, set a good example for future Providence Cristo Rey students, and create a world in which dreams beyond belief can be achieved, bringing hope to those who have none and happiness for those who lack it.


We make this pledge in gratitude for all those people who have shown their belief in us by working and contributing so much to make this school possible. We are confident that if we keep these promises, we will take the lead in creating a more just society and in building a brighter, more hopeful future for ourselves and others.
