Vision Statement

Pre-eminent school for empowered women leaders.


Mission Statement

            We are a school where girls develop into self-confident, poised, and articulate women, empowered to transform our global society.



The Connelly Philosophy

            As an independent college preparatory high school for girls sponsored by the Sisters of the 
Holy Child Jesus, we are true to the original principles of trust, reverence and respect espoused by
our founder Cornelia Connelly.  Guided by the tenets of Catholicism, today we embody a broad sense
of inclusive spirituality.

We value the independence of each young woman, emphasizing that within the local and global community
she seek her destiny by taking personal responsibility for choices of:

                                                                  Academic/intellectual excellence
Critical thinking
An intuitive system of values, ethics and morality
Faithful pursuit of spirituality
Global cultural consciousness and understanding
Optimal college and career preparation
Mature and respectful social interaction
Healthy and happy balanced living
