Letter from the Director of Admissions
We welcome your interest in Holy Child Academy, or HCA, one of a dozen schools worldwide that form the Holy Child Network of Schools. In 1846, Cornelia Connelly founded the Society of the Holy Child Jesus and opened the first Holy Child School. Her educational philosophy - that children learn best in an atmosphere of love and respect - was quite revolutionary in its time, but it rings very true today.
On our wooded 14-acre campus, we offer small classes, competitive sports, challenging academics, music, art, and dance, and a community of teachers, students, parents, and staff that is uniquely warm and caring. A mother once told me, "There's no school like Holy Child anywhere on Long Island." I believe that is so, and I invite you to visit the school, tour the buildings and grounds, observe classes in session, and experience that difference for yourself.
