Our beautiful 30-acre wooded campus, located on the south side of South Bend, Indiana, fills a city block. We are just minutes from downtown South Bend, the University of Notre Dame and Memorial Hospital and only 90 miles from Chicago.
Bernard Hall, the original Hoffman estate, sits at the heart of our campus and once housed the entire school. We have grown extensively through the years, including an addition to Fannin Hall in 2004 and most recently, Hiler Hall in 2015. This new space features state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities, including an art room with glass and clay kilns.
Preschool and kindergarten classrooms are inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy – the only one of its kind in the region. Reggio classrooms are filled with items toexplore, feature an abundance of natural light and materials and include spaces designed for large and small group activities. Student classwork and artwork is thoughtfully displayed to demonstrate respect and inspire creativity.
Our Big Sky Exploration Lab and Decio Media Center (main library), equipped with a 3D printer and maker’s space, brings technology to the fingertips of students. Additional library spaces include the Tiger’s Den for middle school students and the Hammes Professional Library for faculty.
Athletic facilities include two soccer fields, two regulation-size basketball courts and a dance room. Two fully fenced playgrounds, with equipment designed for various age levels, allow for ample outdoor recreation space.
