Leadership in Action

In addition to holding a leadership post in one of our many clubs or athletic teams, students may be elected to lead as a member of Student Council, or get chosen to be part of our Host/Ambassador Program.

Clubs and Organizations

We have always said: if you don’t find a club that interests you, start a new one! Over the years, our groups have included everything from Best Buddies (one of the most established) to the newly founded Club USA.


Service has become a requirement at so many schools, where it’s all about noting hours and checking off lists. At Holy Child, service to others is a way of life, part of the tapestry of the rich experience here. Our students routinely reach out to the wider community with, as one of our network goals state, “joy, zeal and compassion.”

Campus Ministry

Creative prayer and lively worship are central to our life as a Holy Child community. We always like to quote the saying, “singing is praying twice,” and it epitomizes how we approach the spiritual part of the Holy Child experience.


As an all girls’ school with more than half a century of experience, we know intimately that the emotional, the spiritual, and the academic are all intertwined in the success of any student. It is our mission to serve the whole student, her academic endeavors, her emotional growth, and her spiritual development.


Begin at Holy Child.
