    Who We Are| Founded in 1931 by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, Mayfield Junior School is a leading independent, Catholic school serving kindergarten to eighth grade boys and girls. Mayfield is distinguished by the Holy Child educational philosophy of Cornelia Connelly, the Society’s founder. Connelly’s pioneering belief of developing the whole child as an intellectual, spiritual, creative and athletic person set the standard for Mayfield 87 years ago. This belief guides the delivery of our innovative educational program today and inspires the trajectory of our vision into the future.
