Class of 2020

“School for me is no longer just a place to learn, it is a place where laughter resonates through the halls, where funny memories are made every day, and where friends are more like family. I feel that as my love for Holy Child has grown, I have grown with it.”

Alina Troya Aquilato '00

Religious Studies Faculty & Co-Director of Global Programs

"As an alumna and teacher at School of the Holy Child, two of the things I value most are the close relationships I've formed, both among students and faculty, and the incredible balance between spirit and intellect. We are a community that cares for one another both personally and professionally. We want what is best for others, and we show it daily in our joys and challenges."

Sheryl McSherry

Parent of Megan '15 and Kathryn '17

"As parents of an alumna and current senior, Holy Child’s environment has been truly transformative for our daughters. Teachers, school administrators, classmates and parents have all provided them with strong support and encouragement throughout their time at SHC. Our daughters have especially enjoyed the Generoso Pope Italian Cultural Studies and Performing Arts programs, and are thrilled with our school's new state-of-the-art Theatre."
