Holy Angels Opens Doors to Prospective Students 

Demarest, NJ: On Sunday, October 1, the Academy of the Holy Angels, 315 Hillside Avenue in Demarest, will open its doors to prospective students and their families from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Faculty, students, coaches, and staff will share details about the AHA difference, including the Academy’s growth mindset philosophy.

Legacy families are invited to a special reception and VIP tour that will begin at 10 a.m. in the Heritage Room in Kelleher Hall. Those who are new to the AHA community are welcome to take guided tours of the campus, including Kelleher Hall, between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. or between 1:15 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Originally used as a convent for the School Sisters of Notre Dame, AHA’s founders and sponsors, Kelleher Hall has been completely renovated to enhance the Academy’s burgeoning STREAM curriculum. An expansion of STEM, STREAM incorporates science, technology, religion, engineering, arts, and mathematics. Kelleher Hall was named for Sister Genevieve Kelleher, the longest-serving SSND at Holy Angels. The building now offers a Mac Lab, up-to-the-minute art classrooms, conference rooms, and an SSND Heritage Suite.

The Open House will include a formal presentation at 12:30 p.m. Attendees will hear about the exciting, enriching opportunities this private, all-girls Catholic high school has to offer.

The 147 members of the Class of 2017 included 75 Advanced Placement Scholars, and one national winner! Forty-one Angels from this class received the President’s Award for Educational Excellence, 93% of those who took Advanced Placement exams earned passing scores, and four Angels were National Merit Scholarship Finalists. This year’s graduates received a combined total of $19 million in scholarships to attend some of the country’s top-tier colleges and universities, including Boston College, Columbia, Cornell, Georgetown, Notre Dame, New York University, Princeton, Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, and more.

Please join us at this Open House to discover why “Women leaders begin here.” Visit www.holyangels.org/admissions/open-house to RSVP. For further information, call (201) 768-7822, extension 214 or 216. 

Since 1879, thousands of women have passed through the portals of Academy of the Holy Angels high school, the oldest private girls’ school in New Jersey. Many go on to study at some of the nation’s best universities, earning high-ranking positions in medicine, government, law, education, public service, business, arts, and athletics. Our goal is to provide each girl with the tools she needs to reach the fullness of her potential—spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically, by offering a first-rate education in a nurturing environment where equal importance is placed on academic excellence, character development, moral integrity, and giving service to others.
