The advisor program is an integral part of the school-family relationship. Each student has a faculty advisor who oversees her academic and personal growth. The advisor serves as the liaison between the student, the student’s parents, and all of the student’s teachers. Parents are encouraged to contact their daughter’s advisor whenever there is a question about academic, social, or personal issues. Time spent in advisor group meetings is used for a variety of planned activities, discussion topics, and social time.
In the Middle School, a student’s homeroom teacher serves as her advisor. Middle School students report to their advisor three mornings per week upon arrival at school, in addition to an advising period that meets during the school day.
As freshman, students are grouped with faculty members who are experts in the transition between middle school and high school. During sophomore year, students are assigned an advisor who serves in this capacity until graduation from Holy Child.
Challenged and Supported
At Holy Child, students are not afraid to take risks. They investigate chemical reactions in science courses, and interpret complex texts in English class. They construct logical arguments, and identify sound reasoning in courses in rhetoric and religious studies. Holy Child girls are encouraged to become the best version of themselves.
As girls gain a broad base of knowledge through their core courses, a variety of electives and signature programs provide an in-depth study of key areas of interest. The desire to explore, collaborate, research, present and reflect is what defines a Holy Child student.
