First Day of School

The first day of school is a beloved tradition filled with laughter, fun, lots of color, and excitement!  The senior class decorates the campus in their assigned color and welcomes all middle school and upper school students to campus to kick off the academic year.

Ring Day & Prom

Ring Day is a long-standing tradition bridging Holy Child’s current juniors with the women of Holy Child’s past. An intimate ceremony is hosted in the school’s chapel where the juniors receive their school ring from their senior ring sister. Immediately following the ring ceremony, the seniors host a celebration for the juniors filled with delicious food, lots of fun, and photos. That evening, the junior class returns the favor by hosting prom! The juniors pick the theme, decorations, and more to be sure their senior sisters have the best senior prom imaginable.
