School of the Holy Child

Educating Women of Conscience and Action

Every day at Holy Child, we aim to engage our girls in an education that will shape who they are for the rest of their lives. Every project, opportunity, and experience is thoughtfully curated to help develop young women of conscience and action who will “meet the wants of the age.” No matter when a girl arrives at Holy Child, we have the same vision of her on graduation day. We want her to leave Holy Child as the best version of herself. She will be intellectual, courageous, confident, compassionate, and spiritual. Our immersive Signature Programs give students the courage to delve deeper, develop passions and more rigorous levels, and learn to apply their knowledge to solve practical, real-world problems.

“I have learned so much from the faculty, my peers, and my friends about what it means to be human, what it means to be curious, and what it means to be a good friend.”

“My teachers love Holy Child just as much as I do. It is obvious they are truly passionate about working with us. They are always easy to talk to and the assignments and discussions are challenging and interesting.”

“I decided to come to Holy Child because I truly felt at home. I felt comfortable to be who I am and not someone I was trying to be. I was able to picture myself walking down the halls every day with friends.”
