Middle School

Middle School is a formative time where you gain confidence about yourself – as a student, friend, citizen and daughter. At Holy Child, we realize the importance of academics in relation to the more complete picture of who you are as a young woman.

We provide a place of responsibility and trust, rigor and joy, support and sisterhood.

Starting in sixth grade, each student has her own Surface. That means you will stay even better organized, submit assignments online, and ask your teachers questions anytime. You’ll also learn how to do the best research, which means you’re gaining skills for today that will also help in high school and college.

Upper School

Upper School brings challenge and accomplishment as you uncover your core strengths whether its science, math, writing, language or the arts. It's probably a combination. Grades 9-12 is also a time to figure out what challenges you too. And, as you know already, it's not always the easiest time emotionally or socially.  

Our teachers and class preparation is rigorous. We have graduates go to top colleges and excel because of their preparation here, but rigor is only the beginning. You can't stop there and that can't be all high school is about. We know that it's so much more, including the joy of learning and being in a caring community.


More than 60% of the Class of 2016 received college merit scholarships!
