Goals for Schools of the Holy Child Jesus

Grounded in our 150-year heritage and influenced by the unique challenge of educating children for the 21st century, our Goals heed Cornelia Connelly's admonition to provide an education which "meets the wants of the age."

The following Goals have been developed collaboratively by Holy Child educators. They are principles by which we teach children and, in doing so, perpetuate our tradition.

Goal 1 - Holy Child Schools foster a faith commitment that leads to a joyous personal relationship with God in addressing the realities of the world.

Goal 2 - Holy Child Schools live, learn, and worship as a dynamic Catholic community.

Goal 3 - Holy Child Schools offer an intellectually challenging, innovative, and creative program of study that develops academic excellence, encourages curiosity, and instills the joy of learning.

Goal 4 -Holy Child Schools promote Catholic social teaching in every facet of life as we carry out our motto “Actions Not Words.”

Goal 5 - Holy Child Schools create a learning climatebased on trust and reverence for the dignity and uniqueness of each person.

Goal 6 - Holy Child Schools promote the personal growth and development of all who participate in the life of the School.

Goal 7 - Holy Child Schools ensure the continuation andgrowth of Holy Child mission and philosophy in the School.

The trustees, administrators, faculty and staff commit themselves to educate by these principles and to lead our students to embrace these values for themselves.
