At the Connelly Center, we are fully committed to our simple, yet bold mission—to empower every girl to realize her full potential. For twenty-five years, we have served girls at risk across New York City. When we admit a student into the 4th grade, we promise to educate her in grades 4 through 8, and then continuing partnering with her and her family with support through high school, college graduation, and beyond. At CCC, we believe in the potential of every student, and we set high standards to support each girl on her journey to becoming her best self. At the heart of our program is a dedication to holistic education, rooted in the Holy Child tradition, emphasizing academic, artistic, and spiritual development. Perseverance, curiosity, resilience, and zeal are just a few of the values we hold dear. As Cornelia Connelly said: “Sustain a bright and joyful spirit.” Indeed, the optimism and joy of each of our girls is palpable on 4th Street every day, inspiring our faculty, staff, alumnae, parents, donors and trustees.
