The school’s Catholic heritage and its curriculum give Holy Child Academy a distinctive place among Long Island’s independent schools. We remain true to our mission to help children discover God in their lives and emphasize that learning about God can increase one's joy all lifelong. Each student is gently guided spiritually, morally and ethically throughout their Holy Child journey. They experience compassion and mercy firsthand, through our on-going community service and outreach projects.
Our educational principles are based on those of educational pioneer Cornelia Connelly, who stated: “Children learn best in an atmosphere of love and warmth and the teacher-student relationship should be modeled on that of the parent and child.”
Our average class size of 14 allows for this personalized interaction between teacher and student and the creation of a family atmosphere.
We employ a joyful whole child approach to mind, body and spirit that integrates fine and performing arts, music, and exercise daily.
Students graduate from our beautiful wooded campus, as happy, responsible, and compassionate young adults, ready to excel in high school and beyond.
