About Us_Visit Us

Connelly School of the Holy Child was found in the 1800s by Cornelia Connelly, a forward-thinking woman. She established her schools to be responsive to the needs of the time, or in her words, to “meet the wants of the age.” This sentiment still rings true today! Holy Child’s small size, close community, and dynamic leadership allow us to be nimble and flexible with the everchanging world in which we live. Our innovative classrooms and 1:1 Microsoft Surface program provide engaging and rigorous learning environments on and off line.

Open House Patio Series-01

Are you interested in visiting Holy Child's campus? Please join us for our Open House Patio Series. Presentations will be given outdoors in our courtyard (weather permitting) on select weekdays in September and October. Presentations will be hosted by the Admissions Office with participation from faculty and student ambassadors. Guests will gain more knowledge about our mission, educational philosophy, faculty perspective and student experiences, and will have the opportunity to ask questions. Attendees will have the option to tour the buildings after the presentations on self-guided tours assisted by Admissions Office representatives.

Guests are required to wear masks and maintain physical distancing. Hand sanitizer will be available at the presentations and throughout the buildings.

Students interested in grades 9-12 should select an upper school presentation. Students interested in Grades 6-8 should select a middle school presentation. Please register in advance for the event via the button below.
