About this school

Holy Child is a School for children of all faiths. Recently we received a multi million dollar gift so that we could lower tuition to make it more accessible as per the donor's wishes. Class size averages about 14 children in a class. The average standardized test score for EVERY grade place our students in the top 20% of the country in every core area,a result we believe of small class instruction. It is a "whole child" that emphasizes the 4 "A" areas: Academics, Arts, Action and Alleluia!
