8 to 1

The student to faculty ratio is intentionally small. We want to know each and every student, your strengths and challenges. When we truly know you, we can help you be your best possible self.

Traditions

As a part of the Holy Child network of schools, you’ll join a sisterhood founded on faith and tradition that will connect you to people all over the world.

Innovative Classrooms

We’ve innovated many of our classrooms with tables and chairs that can easily be adapted for collaborative and individual learning, writable wall spaces, and easier access to multimedia tools.

This means more meaningful and deliberate teaching and learning, and according to Harvard University, it means more engaged learning that leads to higher test scores.

The Arts

Our fine arts instruction is deeply rooted in experiential learning. There is a climate that nurtures and celebrates and helps us to build on our talents.

The goal is to enhance our lifelong appreciation of the arts, bring joy to the process of discovery, and to challenge our ability to grow in personal expression, and overall achievement.

Spiritual Life

Every class participates in an annual retreat day to reflect, pray, laugh, plan and simply be together as a community. Juniors experience the life-changing four-day Kairos retreat, and seniors enjoy a special overnight retreat full of memories, shared hopes, and deepened prayer.

Service

We provide many opportunities for students to travel the world and reach our global community with joy, zeal and compassion. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Athletics

Because we are a smaller school, every student who wants to participate in athletics has that opportunity. We are consistently competitive within our league.

Spirit

Our school spirit is vibrant. There’s a real joy in learning and growing together. It's a day-to-day spirit that is summed up in BELIEVE.
