"WHAT ONE IS CALLED TO DO,

SHE IS CALLED TO DO WITH ALL HER MIGHT."

- Founder, Cornelia Connelly

Welcome to Holy Child!

It is my great privilege to serve as Head of School at Holy Child. The first time I walked through the School of the Holy Child's front doors, I knew I was walking into a school with a joyful spirit. I am particularly proud to lead a community with a longstanding history of challenging young women to pursue academic excellence and find joy in learning.

There is no work more important than to be engaged in the education and transformation of young women. At Holy Child, we call on our students to be innovative, courageous, self- advocates that embrace their passions and take risks. We are dedicated to developing "women of conscience and action," who will effect change within our community and throughout the world.

I hope that you will visit us soon to learn more about Holy Child's educational philosophy and experience our encouraging and warm community.

Sincerely,

Melissa Dan, Ed.S.
Head of School


We need women who are so strong that they can be gentle,
So educated that they can be humble,
So fierce that they can be compassionate,
So passionate that they can be rational,
And so disciplined that they can be free.
We need uncommon women.
And here you are.
And how deeply reassuring to me it is to know
that wherever we go
there you will be.
