Shaping Spirits, Minds & Futures
Welcome to Holy Cross Central!

Welcome to Holy Cross Central School. I am Mrs. Ruth Tinsley, the school’s principal. I am pleased that you have decided to visit us. As you visit the school through our website and finally in person you will find that we are a Pre-3 Preschool through Eighth grade school that is guided by Roman Catholic, Christian values.

As principal of Holy Cross Central School I bring my experiences from several Catholic schools. I worked at St. Barnabas School as a fourth grade teacher, a middle school Math teacher, a computer teacher, technology coordinator and finally as the master teacher. While working at St. Barnabas I pursued my administrator licensure through the University of Notre Dame. I am licensed by the State of Indiana to be a principal. I have been a principal for the last five years. My experience as principal has been in urban Catholic schools. It has been my privilege to be the principal of Central Catholic, St. Andrew St. Rita Catholic Academy, and Holy Cross Central School.

Our 2014-2015 theme is "Fully Rely on God" or F.R.O.G for short.  Students and teachers are focusing on how to give their lives to God and follow his Commandments.  All students are working hard to learn how to be of service to others following God's teachings.  Our journey through the school year will have students focusing on relying on God at all times.
