Holy Child Academy has long been committed to protecting the environment and teaching students to become stewards of the earth. Practicing what we preach, the administration and trustees have taken action in recent years to upgrade the facilities in a manner that reflects the school's belief that all of us must take responsibility for ensuring sustainability now and in the future. "Green" initiatives have included:
- Upgrading of 90% of all lighting fixtures on campus.
- Replacement of windows with energy-efficient double- and triple-glazed windows.
- Insulation of roofs on the library, Dolan Family Early Childhood Center, and O'Sullivan Hall.
- Replacement of old boilers with energy-efficient ones.
- A campus-wide recycling program of all glass, plastic, electronic equipment, batteries, cardboard, and paper.
- Elimination of all harsh cleaning supplies, replacing them with "green" products.
- Elimination of all pesticides and lawn fertilizers that are not environmentally friendly.
A study is being conducted now on implementing a composting program and the practicality of installing solar panels for the main buildings.
