Holy Child School, also known as Angel’s Hill, is one of Ghana’s top all-female institutions.
Located in Cape Coast, the school was founded by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus in 1946.

The school is highly ranked among the best schools on the continent and churned out the best overall female student in the 2003 Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination and recently two of its students, Jochebed Adwoa Sutherland and Audrey Emefa Awuttey were adjudged top candidates for the 2017 West African Senior School Examination.

Popularly known as Holico, the school currently has over 1,000 girls aged between 14 and 18 years as its students.

The school motto is ‘Facta Non Verba’ which simply means ‘Actions Not Words.’

Holico is known for providing a holistic education for females so that they may strive to achieve higher heights and become ‘Women of Substance’. In Ghana and the world at large, the school has produced icons and leading women in the fields of medicine, fashion, law, politics and civil service.
