The Holy Child Middle School Experience

The Middle School at School of the Holy Child offers an intimate and challenging learning environment for girls in grades five through eight. We balance skill development with an enriching curriculum that encourages the girls to engage with themselves, others and their world. We are committed to providing opportunities for students to take risks, work collaboratively and guide them to become the best version of themselves.
