School of the Holy Child in Rye, established in 1904, is a Catholic, independent, college-preparatory school for young women in grades five through twelve. Guided by the ideals of Cornelia Connelly, founder of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, the School was established to foster “joy in teaching and joy in learning” and to educate young women to “meet the wants of the age.” Through its challenging curriculum and extra curricular programs, Holy Child is committed to developing the inherent talents of each individual.
School of the Holy Child is a place where wisdom, confidence and friendships are found. As a member of an international network of Holy Child schools, the School’s history has long emphasized an active faith and sense of community. Young women are taught to value diversity and become active participants in a global world as “women of conscience and action.”
