The Holy Angels' Convent Higher Secondary School is one of the oldest educational institutions in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), the capital of the state Kerala in India. This school for girls was opened on November 10, 1880 by Mother Elias from Ireland. She was the foundress of the Congregation of the Carmelite Religious (C.C.R).

In 1888, the school secured the honour of being the first girls' school in South India which presented students for the Matriculation Examination of Madras University. In 1896, the school was upgraded to a second grade college. But this college section was closed in 1906. The school boasts of a strength of over 6000 students, mostly girls. Admission to the boys is restricted up to the IV standard. Both English and Malayalam are used as the media for instruction.
