Inspired girls need an inspiring school.
At Holy Child, each girl’s academic strength grows through an intellectually challenging and dynamic program of study. Because evidence shows girls thrive on connection and context, we design collaborative, active, inquiry-based approaches for every class, from science and math to literature and history. We create space and time for faculty to mentor, advise, coach and connect with each student as an individual.Our highly personal college preparatory curriculum is based in a Catholic educational tradition that joins faith and intellect. Our innovative teachers take it ever forward to create the best learning environment for girls.Every day, with passion, conviction and grit, we build deep, energizing joy in learning. The college and career accomplishments of our alumnae prove the success of our approach.
