Cornelia Connelly School was a Catholic college-preparatory high school for girls in Anaheim, California. Established in 1961 by the Sisters of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, it is named after Cornelia Connelly, founder of that Roman Catholic religious institute. Although located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, it is an independent school, one of ten Holy Child schools in the United States.[3] In October 2019, the Board of Trustees announced their vote to close the school at the end of the 2019–2020 school year due to diminishing enrollment, increased debt, and shortfalls in fundraising efforts.[4] There also are thirteen other Holy Child Schools in England, Ireland, France, Ghana, and Nigeria.
