Upon entering Holy Child, every student and faculty member is assigned to either the Blue or the Gold team.  The in two main events during the year. Blue Gold in the fall which is a flag football game and It’s Academic in the Spring. Students can also gain points for their team throughout the year by attending or participating in different school events.


Spirit Week

Spirit Week is a week-long competition among grade levels that ends with games on Color Day. Students receive points for best costumes, Connelly Quiz, and other competitions throughout the week.


Ring Day

Ring Day is a long-standing tradition that a junior is paired with a senior who is her ring sister and presents her with her onyx school ring in a special ceremony held in the Chapel. It is the official recognition of our Junior students becoming Upper Class women.


Mother/Daughter May Crowning

A morning in May dedicated to honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary. Students and Mothers participate in a prayer service and the crowning of Mary followed by a breakfast.

In the fall, Middle School students come together to produce a musical performance like James and the Giant Peach Jr. and The Little Mermaid, Jr. In the spring, it's the Upper School students who bring you musicals like Cats, The Wizard of Oz and Joseph and the Amazing Dream Coat.


Find out the traditions that define us as a student body and help instill the sisterhood that we enjoy now and well into the future.

Leadership in Action

Lead through many clubs, on an athletic team, as a member of Student Council, or as part of our Host/Ambassador Program.

Clubs and Organizations

Over the years, our groups have included everything from Best Buddies to the newly founded Club USA.


Service is a way of life, part of the tapestry of the rich experience here. Our students routinely reach out to the wider community to help make a difference.

Campus Ministry

Creative prayer and lively worship are central to our life as a community. “Singing is praying twice,” epitomizes how we approach our life of faith at Holy Child.


As an all girls’ school, we know intimately that the emotional, the spiritual, and the academic are all intertwined in the success of any student.
