Our Principal

Welcome to Holy Angels!

Built in 1879, Academy of the Holy Angels has a long and rich tradition of educating young women to pursue the fullest development of their God-given talents. While the world has changed drastically since then, the mission of the School Sisters of Notre Dame has not: Education is transformative and has the ability to systemically produce the changes the world needs the most.

Holy Angels offers a safe environment where girls feel free to be themselves while they navigate through their high school years. During their tenure at Holy Angels, girls build self-confidence as they occupy roles at every level in their clubs, sports and activities. Girls feel freer to live according to their true selves in our single sex environment. Most importantly, our students find their voice and learn how to use it most effectively.

Our academics are cutting edge and offer tangible and practical learning experiences for today’s business climate. For example, students can take AP economics, art, music, engineering and ethics classes that balance a classic STEM education. We are proud to announce that we are now offering a business track program that affords students experience in the areas of finance, marketing, accounting and business in addition to a mandatory field experience during the junior year that gives students hands on experience in their chosen business field. Overall, Holy Angels is known for academic rigor and our graduates repeatedly share with us how well prepared they are not only for college, but for the challenging careers they pursue after college.

Daily, I am humbled by the dedication that is evident in the efforts of our faculty and students. I am witness to adults and teens who give of themselves, who are encouraged to see the inner beauty of each individual and who respond to the needy, both locally and afar. Together, we foster a safe and loving environment and work towards the common goal that “the world can be changed by the transformation of persons.”

Thank you for visiting our website and it is my hope that I get to meet with you when you visit our community in person.

May God Bless You.
