Innovate.

Next Steps: Moving into Student Common Areas

Our Innovate the Space campaign allows us to move forward with transformational plans to enhance the intellectual, physical, and social well-being of our students.

Phase 2 of the Innovate initiative will see the creation of a bright, inviting, and highly functional place for the community to gather for conversation, meetings, work, or retreats throughout the day. The new cafeteria, The Connelly Commons, will be designed to seamlessly flow in and out of our Hanley Courtyard, extending the room and bringing the outdoors, inside.

Phase 3 will move our Fitness Center directly underneath the gymnasium to offer dedicated training and team rooms. The Senior Lounge will also be reconfigured and refurbished, as well as a student lounge, study rooms, and reconfigured academic lockers will create opportunities for students of all grades to come together, creating connections between classes and during free periods.

We are grateful to the Holy Child community for their continued support and look forward to providing our students with the most innovative and dynamic classroom and community spaces where young women develop curiosity, passion, and a commitment to lead and serve.

Phase 3

Phase 3
Optimizing the importance of team space in The Tigers’ Den

Reallocating areas to enhance and improve our students’ health and wellness activities and provide a more seamless flow for students. Beginning with relocating and reconfiguring our Fitness Room to offer more strength and conditioning stations in a space where students can easily access showers and dedicated training and team rooms, where our athletic teams can gather, pre- and post- games. Additionally, the senior lounge will be reconfigured and refurbished, continuing the legacy by recognizing the importance of a cherished tradition for the senior class to strengthen their bonds before heading off to college. Bringing all of these areas together, a student lounge open for all grades will create more opportunities for students to come together, creating connections between classes and during free periods.
