College Counseling

"Remember that it is not sufficient to have begun well; you must also persevere and finish with resolution."
Cornelia Connelly


The words of Cornelia Connelly, the foundress of the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus and the Holy Child network of schools, inspire the mission and practices of the College Counseling Office. At Holy Child, the College Counseling team provides an individualized approach to college counseling, supporting the personal, academic, and collegiate goals of every student from the first day of freshman year to graduation day.

Dedicated to engaging extensively with each student and her family, the team works to ensure that each girl applies to colleges that best suit her goals and abilities and subsequently chooses a college that will nurture her interests, empower her to be "the best version of herself" within the classroom and beyond, and prepare her to navigate and succeed in a diverse, interconnected world.

Students at School of the Holy Child begin the college preparation process on the first day of freshman year. The courses they take, the extracurricular activities in which they choose to participate, and the relationships they establish with faculty and peers are all part of the process. From the beginning, the School seeks to empower its students to engage in an academic program that is best suited to the student's individual strengths and interests, learning styles, and goals.
