Message from Our Head of School

Cheryl Cervoni, Head of School

As the new Head of School, I walk around in awe of the love of God and the great plans he has for each one of us. As I prayed to the Lord for direction and opportunity to use my gifts to serve him, I waited with excitement to see what doors he would open. Interestingly, he brought me right back to the place that brought me to Long Island in the first place, Holy Child Academy. 

In 2007, my husband and I enrolled our children into HCA and we have been an active part of the community ever since. I have had several roles throughout the years: parent, parent association vice president, coach, board member, teacher and now Head of School.

HCA is dear to my heart and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with an extraordinary staff, a selfless board of directors and a supportive community. Historically, Holy Child Academy has been a community of faith. A community that celebrates Catholic traditions and values. We will continue to integrate these values as we educate the whole child. We embrace and discover each student’s uniqueness through our 4 A’s: Academics, Athletics, Arts, and Alleluia. Our students are encouraged to discover their talents and use their gifts to serve one another and expand the kingdom of God. We nurture our students to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ so they have a strong foundation in their faith as they navigate a challenging, ever changing world.

Holy Child is a place that allows children to feel at home. Our founder Cornelia Connelly believed that children should approach life with joy, confidence, academic excellence, social responsibility, and most importantly a strong faith. I look forward to fostering her philosophies while growing and strengthening our Holy Child community and continuing our standard of excellence.

May God Bless You,
Cheryl Cervoni
