Red Cloud High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. It is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rapid City and serves Oglala Lakota Native American children on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Background[edit]

The school was founded in 1941 as Holy Rosary Mission from an expansion of a school system by the same name,[2] that Jesuits and Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity had founded in 1888. The school, and the now four-school K-12 school system, was renamed Red Cloud in 1969.[3]
