One of Jamaica's best kept secrets is this beautiful oasis strategically positioned in the midst of Half Way Tree. Holy Childhood High School – your school of choice for girls in Jamaica, founded in 1937.
Boasting a campus of approximately seven (7) acres with a student population of over 1700 students, the school stands as a traditional Roman Catholic institution with a rich history spanning 78 years.
The school was named after the Holy Childhood of Jesus by its founders and owners - the Franciscan Missionary (Blue) Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help of Jamaica.This local Congregation of consecrated religious women was founded on September 08, 1929 to meet the spiritual and social needs of the Jamaican Society at the time: pastoral care, evangelization, health care and education.
To this end, Holy Childhood High School continues to fulfill the mission of its founders by "witnessing to God's presence in our world as a sign of hope to all but especially to the poor... To be a caring, loving presence... attesting to the dignity of womanhood and thereby touching all areas of human life" (Franciscan Missionary Sisters Mission Statement).
As you explore our website you will make wonderful and exciting discoveries about our school family. So come along... prepare to be inspired, stimulated, motivated and challenged.
