Connelly School of the Holy Child is much more than a school, it is a community of young women ready to explore a world of possibilities! The all-girls’ environment provides a compassionate, empowering, and challenging experience that prepares our students for success in both college and in life. We would like to invite your daughter to experience and share in the benefits of becoming a special part of the Holy Child family.

Our school is an exceptional place where young women receive a Catholic education offering the opportunity to excel spiritually, emotionally, and academically. Holy Child’s dedicated faculty and staff are committed to providing a supportive and nurturing learning environment that recognizes each student as an individual, while giving them the tools to fully realize their talents and potential. Our small classes and inviting campus encourage your daughter to become more engaged in the learning process and to be recognized by her teachers and peers as a valued member of the community—one who is affirmed and celebrated in many ways.

At Holy Child, students encounter strong female roles every day. They are the class president, the captain of their team, a leader in their class, and in their clubs. Studies continue to show that students at single-sex high schools outperform their peers in a co-ed environment in all areas of schooling: academics, leadership, community participation, and personal development.

At Holy Child, we recognize and value that each student comes to us with her own unique gifts, and it is our goal to help foster those gifts so that she can bring about positive change in our world. Ample opportunities are given to Holy Child students to express themselves and hone their skills and abilities by starting clubs, planning service projects, participating in sports and holding leadership positions on campus. Your daughter will develop life-long friendships and be a part of a sisterhood that will enrich her life for years to come. Many fond memories will be made as your daughter grows in knowledge, character, and spirit. Her confidence will soar along with her abilities and she will have the pride of knowing that one day she will be called a Holy Child alumna. Our graduates leave Connelly School of the Holy Child with friendships that last a lifetime and a commitment to using their gifts in service of others.

I am excited to know that you are considering Holy Child as your choice for your daughter’s education. We know how important this decision is, and we invite you to visit the school and get to know us better. I would like to extend to you my personal assurance that your daughter will be given a superior education, where she will be valued and given a solid foundation, infused with morals and values, enabling her to be well prepared for her future. We open our arms to you and your family, and look forward to seeing you on campus.

Once again…welcome to Holy Child!

"A girl should choose Holy Child because it is a place where she can truly learn life skills and build confidence both in and out of the classroom. The teachers want you to succeed, and they are willing to put in extra time to make sure that happens. I have never met so many people who look forward to going to school and classes every day because they are excited to see their friends and feel like they can truly be themselves."
