AHA President Melinda Hanlon

Our President

Dear Students and Families,

Welcome to the Academy of the Holy Angels! We are proud to be the oldest Catholic college preparatory school for women in Bergen County. Founded in 1879, this year we celebrate 140 years of educating our young women to become the leaders our world needs most. As a sponsored work of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, AHA’s mission is to transform the world through education. Today more than ever, we seek to provide our students with a secure campus and safe learning environment. Just as the word of God is living and active, so is our philosophy of education. We continuously seek to improve and evolve our programs and facilities in order to provide our Angels with a high school experience characterized by academic excellence, faith development, moral integrity and service to others. These are the hallmarks of an AHA education.

At Holy Angels, our goal is to empower our students- in the classroom, in the art studio, on the performing arts stage, on the playing fields and through the many service opportunities and trips available to them. An alumna described Holy Angels as a place where she discovered that “God has plans for our lives that are greater than we can ever imagine.” Our Angels are living their faith. Women leaders start here.

The best way to learn more about the Angels advantage is to visit our school. I invite you to join us at one of our open houses and be sure to sign up for an "Angel for a Day" visit and discover the difference a Holy Angels education can offer you!
