Welcome to Connelly School, where young women come to lead, serve and inspire!
Our young women are empowered to recognize their gifts and talents, consider their leadership potential, develop a love of learning and experience academic excellence in a climate based on trust and reverence for the uniqueness of each person. In this way, our students can learn to work for a future where faith, justice, peace and compassion can truly make a difference in our world. As part of a global network of schools sponsored by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, our distinctive spirit has been serving students around the world since 1846.
After educating young ladies from Orange, Los Angeles, and Riverside counties for nearly 60 years, we are sad that the 2019-2020 academic year will be our last. We remain fully committed to our students and families during this difficult time, and the administration, faculty, and staff of Connelly will continue working to secure the best possible high school experience for each of our students wherever their search may guide them.
Thank you for partnering with us to support the inspiring students of Cornelia Connelly School. While we are saddened with, and for, our students our focus now is to provide as seamless a transition as is possible, and to help prepare our girls for the next phase of their lives.
