​"WHAT ONE IS CALLED TO DO,
SHE IS CALLED TO DO WITH ALL HER MIGHT."

Founder, Cornelia Connelly

​Welcome to Holy Child!

Our founder, Cornelia Connelly, believed that all schools should​ ​embody “joy in teaching and joy in learning.”  Holy Child’s faculty and students express a joyful spirit on a daily basis. As Interim Head of School, it is a gr​​eat privilege to witness the collaboration and support that we share with one another to create an enriching and innovative educational experience for the young women of Holy Child.  

When we returned to campus at the start of September, it was clear that our culture and spirit were still shining brightly!  Despite the uncertainties, our mission will keep us rooted in our work to best meet the needs of our girls.  Educating “women of conscience and action” is critical as we seek to develop tomorrow’s leaders in our ever-changing world. A dedication to inspiring courageous self-advocates is shared by all who engage with our students both in and outside the classroom.

To meet the needs of our prospective families, we are reimagining ways of introducing you to our school community.  Please stay connected with us and you will be given multiple opportunities to learn about and experience the unique programs and caring people who are Holy Child.

Thank you deeply for your interest in Holy Child.  

Gratefully,

Colleen R. Pettus
Interim 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.
