Welcome to Connelly!
What does Cornelia Connelly School have that no other school has? Come and See. You will find yourself in an environment surrounded by confident and friendly young women who are motivated to pursue their personal and academic goals. You will see by their words and actions that they do lead, serve and inspire during the school day and beyond. They take that responsibility seriously because Connelly is guided by the Holy Child mission and philosophy that permeates every aspect of school life. Our students experience joy in learning and find a voice through their unique talents. Our dedicated faculty and staff encourage these young women to express their creativity and find new ways to learn. There is a focus on collaboration with a global outreach that respects the dignity of each person.
How do our students measure up “in the real world” after coming from an intentionally small school? Our alumnae are proud to come back to Connelly and relate how well they are doing in college, and that they have already set their sights on graduate school.
You will be guided through this website to learn about the extraordinary educational program at Connelly. It will also answer many of your questions. However, only personal interactions with our young women on our campus will tell the true story of a Connelly education, which is imbued with the distinctive spirit shared by Schools of the Holy Child since 1846.
In the words of one of our students, “It’s not what we do at Connelly, it’s how we do it.”
