Founded in 1927, Holy Child Academy (HCA) is an independent, Catholic school for students of all faiths from two years old to eighth grade. HCA provides exceptional academics inspired by the vision and ideals of educational innovator Cornelia Connelly. HCA educates students diverse in culture, ethnicity, and religious beliefs. Within a small, action-oriented community, faculty work purposefully with all students to build confidence, encourage creativity, and develop character from the earliest ages.
At Holy Child Academy we are proud of our approach to educating the whole child in a nurturing, yet competitive, academic environment. We look forward to hearing from you and working with you as you apply to Holy Child Academy.
Inspired by the vision and ideals of educator Cornelia Connelly, Holy Child Academy lays the foundation for a lifetime of excellence, achievement and service.
Enriching Students' Development
From Montessori materials in Early Childhood classrooms to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) education in Pre-K to eighth grade, students are motivated to learn and are challenged by their teachers.
Self-confident. Conscientious. Motivated.
Small classes allow students to discover their unique gifts; strong academics instill a lifelong love of learning; and a vibrant arts and athletics program enrich the students' development.
Nurturing Respect, Responsibility and Generosity
Providing moral and religious guidance, a solid academic foundation, and communication and technology skills for the future, Holy Child Academy nurtures strong citizens and capable leaders.
Foundation for a Lifetime of Achievement
Holy Child Academy alumni play an important role in the life of the school. We enjoy seeing alumni return to HCA—whether it's to say hello, attend the school play or volunteer at an admissions event.
Making a Difference
Generous support by alumni, parents and friends makes the extraordinary possible at Holy Child Academy. From attending the annual HCA auction to donating to the Innovation Lab, our supporters advance the Holy Child Academy mission in many ways.
