NEW CAMPUS MOVE

Since PCRHS opened its doors nearly 15 years ago, we have been searching for a school building that reflects both the incredible potential of our students and the high caliber of our academic and Corporate Work Study programs.

 

We are thrilled to announce that we have found a potential new school building location that we believe will be an excellent fit for our school community. This facility is significantly newer, has much larger classroom spaces, and regulation-size athletic facilities, such as a gym, track, and soccer field, that will allow our school to host competitions, and many other benefits. Additionally, the location is less than 7 miles away from our current school building.

 

The building we are considering is the former Christel House South campus located at 2717 South East Street, Indianapolis, IN 46225, just south of Garfield Park. While the purchase of this location is not yet finalized, we have signed a purchase agreement and are entering into a 60-day due diligence period in which we will be evaluating the property to ensure that it will be a safe and sustainable location for our school. After this period is finished and the purchase is finalized, we intend to announce our final decision, with the ultimate goal of beginning the 2022-2023 school year in the new facility. 

 

We truly believe that this campus move is essential to the future success of Providence Cristo Rey High School. We have no doubt that this incredible space will be an amazing change for our students, staff, and entire PCRHS community! 

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where are we moving?
We are moving to the former Christel House South Academy located at 2717 South East Street, Indianapolis, 46225.

Why are we moving/what are the advantages to moving?  

  • The facility is much newer than the current facility (early 1990’s as opposed to early 1900’s) which means fewer repairs

  • The facility is much larger (we will gain approximately 40,000 Square Feet) and the land that the school sits on is also much larger with a football/soccer field and track currently and with the future opportunity to create a baseball/softball field

  • The facility has a full size IHSAA regulation gym so we can host home contests for basketball, volleyball, and wrestling.

  • The facility has more space for administrative offices so that most staff will not have to share space as they do currently

  • The facility has a huge parking lot, plenty of room for staff, students and visitors!

  • While the new facility is a little further south than our current location, it is much more centrally located with regard to the east and west sides of the city.

  • The facility is air conditioned!

When will the move take place?

Although not 100% confirmed, we anticipate that the move will take place last week of June – early July so that we can be operational for the 2022-23 school year at the beginning of August 2022.

When can we see the new building?

We will be offering a couple of times for students/families to visit before we formally move in and will host a formal open house for our school community once we have settled in.

Will it be more expensive for my son/daughter to attend the new school?

No! The portion of tuition paid by our families will remain the same as it would if we stayed on Belleview Place. A third party, TADS, will still determine the amount each family will pay as in the past.

How will this affect bus routes? Will there be more stops added for students living close to the current location on Belleview Place?

We will still be offering transportation at no charge to families and many of the current bus stops will remain the same. We will be adding or changing bus stops as always based on the location of each family residence and those who currently live on the near west side in the Haughville area – bus stops will very likely be added near the current Belleview location.

Do you need help with the move?

At this point, no help is needed but we will communicate any need for help as we identify them.

Will class schedules change? Will lunch periods change?

Schedules and lunches will likely change due to increased class transition times as well as the increased size of the cafeteria. Those decisions will not be finalized until mid-summer.

How will the move affect summer school for June 2022?

Summer school will likely still take place at the current location since we may not have furniture yet at the new location.

Will the phone number, extensions, and emails change?

Although the main phone number and our emails will not change, extensions could very well change. We will communicate this information as soon as possible, probably mid-summer.

What supports will you have for students in navigating the new building and getting to know the facility?

We will be communicating with students and families frequently and providing you with layout of the building both on the website and with printed maps that will be available at the reception desk. We will also provide students with tours prior to and during the first few days of school. Lastly, there will be a grace period in between classes for the first week of school for all students until they are comfortable navigating the building.
