Pre-eminent school for empowered women leaders.
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:
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
