November 2019

Happy Birthday, AHA!
The Academy celebrated its 140th birthday on October 2. Extending Feast Day tradition, several members of the senior class were commissioned as Eucharistic Ministers. Kudos!
Be Our Guest
The October Open House was one of AHA’s largest. Over 650 prospective students and their families attended this high-energy event.
Fighting On
The Academy hosted its second annual soccer fundraiser to benefit the Karen Camporeale Fund. The Angels hosted Paramus, and “Played to Fight On” against breast cancer on a lovely autumn afternoon.
Lauding Longevity
Several long-term members of the AHA faculty and staff were recognized at this month’s Mass for Catholic school personnel. Selected Angels and adults from AHA sang at this special service.
Angelic Artwork
Members of the Class of 2019 AP Studio Art course with Mrs. Christine DeGennaro created a pair of angels that now flank the entrance to the Kelleher Hall Chapel. The paintings were framed and installed where they will welcome everyone who attends AHA’s weekly Masses.

Incoming freshmen may now apply for five new awards of $2,500 each. Visit and click on the “Admissions” page for details about the awards, which recognize accomplishments in leadership, spirituality and service, instrumental music, vocal music, and fine arts.
