At the Cornelia Connelly Center, we believe that every girl deserves to be understood as an individual and supported in her quest to become the best person she can be. A strong support system is created through the partnership and hard work of every member of the Center’s community, including our teachers, parents, Board members, benefactors, and the girls themselves.

Cornelia Connelly Center
Cornelia Connelly Center
The mission of the Cornelia Connelly is to give girls from low-income families a uniquely effective educational foundation, encompassing a comprehensive middle school program, strong support through high school, planning for higher education, and a vibrant alumnae community, which together enable Connelly students to fulfill their potential and achieve productive roles in society.
This is our specific expression of the shared mission of the Holy Child Network of Schools: To endeavor, guided by the philosophy and spirituality of Cornelia Connelly, to develop mature persons capable of making choices which enrich their lives and contribute to the lives of others.
Focus:
- We operate an excellent, neighborhood-based independent Catholic middle school on the Lower East Side of Manhattan to serve girls living in poverty, particularly those whose academic performance in primary grades has lagged, but who show promise of benefiting from a comprehensive program – intentionally small, nurturing and challenging – designed to meet their needs
- We help our students develop the aspirations, confidence, skills and values they will need to succeed in high school and pursue higher education and careers.
- We support middle school graduates through high school with a structured program of tuition assistance, study aid, and counseling, including guidance on college admissions.
- We maintain relationships through college and beyond, providing a network of support to help alumnae overcome challenges to complete their degrees and embark on careers.
Who we are:
Beyond this community, the special character of our school has been inspired by a remarkable 19th-century educator, Cornelia Connelly. In contrast to the rigid schooling methods of her era, Cornelia insisted that teachers “trust the children” and articulated a progressive philosophy of educating the whole child – nurturing intellectual, spiritual, social and artistic development in a loving environment. While her then-radical thinking is now accepted wisdom, we continue to be motivated by her insistence on paying attention to the unique gifts of every girl.
The Connelly Middle School is a member of the Holy Child Network of Schools and is sponsored by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus. When creating a model for the Cornelia Connelly Center, we looked to the Nativity Mission Center, which since 1971 has helped disadvantaged boys on the Lower East Side to break the cycle of poverty through education at the middle school level. Our school was one of the earliest members of what is now the NativityMiguel Network, a nationwide movement fighting to break the cycle of urban poverty through education. We have taken a leadership role within the Network, which now includes 64 schools in 40 cities across the United States serving over 4,000 children.
