Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
At Holy Child School at Rosemont, we are guided by the principles of our faith and our Holy Child Goals to honor and celebrate the diversity among us and foster an inclusive community where everyone belongs. Our values are deeply rooted in the Holy Child Mission and the teachings of our Foundress, Cornelia Connelly, who developed "an educational system based on trust and reverence for the dignity of every human being.” We respect the unique qualities and diverse perspectives of each person and strive to create a culture where all community members feel included, seen, heard, celebrated, and cared for. As an educational and faith-based community, we seek to model and teach the values of respect, empathy, integrity, and inclusion to create a nurturing and accepting environment.

We embrace, celebrate, and seek to understand the diverse cultures, identities, and backgrounds present within our community and encourage all community members to contribute their unique gifts and perspectives.
We commit to an ongoing learning process as an institution, creating opportunities for education and conversation, especially for our faculty and staff. To help our students become responsible global citizens, our faculty provide equitable opportunities to students through a robust curriculum that “meets the wants of the age.”
We commit to embodying what it means to be a community, fostering a sense of belonging, acceptance, and care for everyone who interacts with our school.
We commit to increasing and cultivating the diversity of our faculty, staff, and student body, with the aim of providing students with a culturally expansive and equitable environment in which to learn, achieve, and grow.
We strive to live by Cornelia Connelly’s motto, “Actions, Not Words,” modeling the values of inclusion, justice, peace, compassion and service to others and incorporating those values into all areas of school life.
