Holy Child Catholic School is located at Plaza Hernandez in Tondo, Manila, the Philippines. It sits beside the Santo Niño de Tondo Parish.


During the Liberation Period immediately following World War II, Rt. Msgr. Jose N. Jovellanos and four Jesuit priests founded the Tondo Parochial School. It was located at the site of the defunct Instituto de Mujeres, where the Manila Cathedral School is now located. Classes began on July 2, 1945.

Later, the school was moved to its location beside the Sto. Niño Church, where the Tondo Orphanage used to stand. The government began to recognize it as a legitimate school on February 22, 1951. The school became a corporation on October 23, 1954, under the name Holy Child Catholic School(HCCS). In 1955, HCCS was granted government recognition for complete secondary and kindergarten courses. Then, the school graduated its first high school students.
