Student Life


Student Life at Holy Child is rich in tradition, faith, passion, and personal-growth. Holy Child provides opportunities for students to engage with the school community outside of the classroom where they will have the chance to grow, find their passion, and enrich the lives of those in and out of our community. Through Student Life activities, our students become well- rounded women of faith and action, grow as leaders, and create lifelong friendships.

Traditions at Holy Child serve as a bond between Holy Child’s previous graduating class and the current graduating class. These traditions build class unity, lifelong friendships & memories, and an important and unbreakable bond with Holy Child. They shape Holy Child into the second home it becomes for all of our girls. Our traditions include:

  • Blue/Gold Games
  • Junior Ring Day
  • Spirit Week
  • All School Day of Service
  • Student Government Induction
  • Evening of the Arts

Another pivotal part of Student Life at Holy Child is faith & service. In keeping with our founder Cornelia Connelly’s teachings, Holy Child values the uniqueness of each individual and fosters a life of service to others.  As a community, we participate in an All School Day of Service. This gives every member of the Holy Child community the opportunity to give back in a meaningful and powerful way.

Here at Holy Child we strive to be sure every student leaves having found their passion and the opportunity to seek leadership roles. For some, that’s on the athletic field or the stage - and for others it happens at our Annual Club Fair. Students can join an array of clubs on campus. Some of those include:

  • Best Buddies
  • Christ Child Society Club
  • Warrior Canine Connection Club
  • Girls Gives Back
  • Diversity Club

Clubs and Organizations

Leadership in Action

Lead through many clubs, on an athletic team, as a member of Student Council, or as part of our Host/Ambassador Program.

Spiritual Life

Creative prayer and lively worship are central to our life as a community. “Singing is praying twice,” epitomizes how we approach our life of faith at Holy Child.


Service is a way of life, part of the tapestry of the rich experience here. Our students routinely reach out to the wider community to help make a difference.


As an all girls’ school, we know intimately that the emotional, the spiritual, and the academic are all intertwined in the success of any student.
