About Us

Established by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1879, Holy Angels is the oldest private school in Bergen County. An independent college preparatory school for young women, the Academy was originally located in Fort Lee, New Jersey. In 1965, AHA moved to a 24-acre campus in Demarest, New Jersey – just ten miles from New York City. The present student body comes from 96 cities and towns in New Jersey and New York. Holy Angels welcomes students from many different communities, ethnic backgrounds and religious affiliations.

Educating the young women the world needs most.

At AHA, the curriculum, the arts and athletics programs, the extra-curricular activities, and even the facilities, are planned with one goal in mind: enabling each and every student to reach the fullness of her potential, so she in turn may share her gifts with others. In their 4 years at the Academy, students are immersed in a global curriculum, and have countless opportunities to pair their academic work with service endeavors that complement one another. Some, even uncovering possible career paths. Holy Angels students do not wait for a better world; they attempt to create it.
