AHA President Melinda Hanlon

Our President

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the Academy of the Holy Angels! As you visit the pages of our website, I hope you will begin to gain a sense of our school community. We are proud to be the oldest Catholic college preparatory school for women in Bergen County, founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1879. We partner with our families as we continue the mission of the School Sisters 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 as we 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 young women are living their faith both through the formation they receive in their classes and the community service they give to others. 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.” The accomplishments of our recent graduates certainly reflect her words. The Class of 2018 contributed 22,000 hours of service during their four years at AHA and earned more than 13 million dollars in scholarships. Our graduates consistently earn acceptance at our nation’s top tier colleges and universities. Women leaders begin here.

The coming year promises to be an exciting one for us as we embark on phase two of our “Legacy of Excellence” campaign to renovate our school auditorium and music wing. These updates and enhancements to our facilities will provide interdisciplinary space to serve all our students and allow for expansion of our performing arts programs.

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 the AHA experience can offer you.
