Parish History

Saint Aloysius Catholic Church was founded in 1858 and has been serving Allen and Wells Counties ever since. We are located on Bluffton Road, just south of the 469 Overpass. The parish consists of a beautiful church with a close-knit community of faith and a school staffed with excellent teachers and administrators committed to each and every one of its students.

In 1867 a small frame building schoolhouse was built and was used for two to three months per year. On October 9, 1876, the school was opened and in 1882, a two-story brick building was built. Pupils were first taught by the Sisters of St. Agnes and then by the Sisters of St. Joseph.

Since that time, Saint Aloysius Catholic School is the oldest, continuously run, Catholic school in the Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese. Over 140 years of education and tradition are now the foundation for excellence. Strong Catholic values such as morality and integrity coupled with high academic achievement are the cornerstone of our foundation. From that foundation we continue to build a new sense of excellence

Today, this school maintains small class sizes and a family environment with a concentration on Christian formation and academic growth. This school is fully accredited with standardized testing scores consistently above state average, high attendance rates, and individual academic progress. St. Aloysius has a strong and rich tradition of excellence and is accepting applications at any time. Our teachers pay attention to your child every day.
