The Shared System’s 22 libraries serve two museums, 12 elementary schools, nine high schools, and thousands of IndyPL library patrons. Students borrow from their school libraries, IndyPL, and other schools. IndyPL patrons can use museum books on site, and borrow from school libraries through their own branches. When libraries share, everybody wins.
Located minutes from downtown Indianapolis, Providence Cristo Rey High School (PCRHS) is a private, Catholic, college preparatory high school for students from families with limited financial means. Part of a national network of Cristo Rey schools, PCRHS combines rigorous classroom instruction with real-life corporate work study experiences for our students by partnering with businesses in the Indianapolis area. Through the Corporate Work Study Program, the faith-based, college preparatory education is affordable for economically disadvantaged students and families. Each year, 100 percent of the senior class was accepted into college.
