AHA Principal Jennifer Moran

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 produce, systemically, the changes the world needs the most.

At Holy Angels, students are challenged in multitudinous ways including a top-notch STREAM program, academic rigor, experiential educational opportunities, service to others, exploration through the fine arts and an extensive extracurricular program that includes sports and performing arts. Daily, you will find our students thinking critically, asking essential questions, problem solving, collaborating, using innovative technologies, praying, effectively communicating, creating, developing time management skills, and more. In short: Our students are learning the tools and skills they need to effect change in a complex, diverse and ever-changing world.  

Our educational philosophy and traditions inspire strong young women who are confident, compassionate, independent yet nurturing and who value the dignity of all people. Students spend valuable time building relationships with God, with peers and teachers, with family and friends and with self. We believe in helping students build roots that are deep and strong; the foundation they will need and return to throughout their lives. We are dedicated to working with girls who are willing to challenge themselves and who have a desire to stretch and grow. 

As an alumna of AHA, a past parent, a teacher and now as an administrator, I’ve worn many hats that fill our constituency. Because of my experiences, I am able to envision all perspectives as we make decisions that affect all of us. I love Holy Angels and I am deeply proud to lead this community of dedicated educators and learners. Thank you for visiting our website and it is my hope that I get to meet with you when you visit us in person.
