    We had used the threat of sending our daughter to all girls school as incentive to boost her grades. She was bright, but far too easily distracted by her phone and social drama. Then, three months into her sophomore year, she asked to transfer to AoSE; she was as overwhelmed by the social and academic pressures of our high school as we were underwhelmed by her GPA.

    AoSE has proven one of the greatest gifts we’ve given our daughter.

    She benefited immediately: her stress level dropped, her grades soared and she became the engaged daughter we’d missed at home. She embraced sports, joined clubs and made great new friends. The uniform also made mornings much easier!

    Our daughter is graduating a member of the National Honor Society and going to a college that wouldn’t have been a realistic reach before she transferred. At AoSE she blossomed into the well-rounded, confident young woman we hoped she’d become, given the right environment. AoSE is that environment.

    The Academy of St. Elizabeth’s is the best kept secrets in Northern NJ. I have two daughters that currently attend and having experienced both a public-school education and a faith-based education, Saint Elizabeth’s is by far one of the best decisions my wife and I have ever made for our daughters. Classes are small so students aren’t lost in class discussions, teachers are top notch and engaged, the administration is always willing to make an effort on a student’s behalf, facilities are beautiful for they are a high school on a college campus! The students go on to attend some of the best universities in America. They have comradery, respect for one another and a very strong sense of school spirit. In comparison to other schools Saint Elizabeth’s is very reasonably priced. My daughter said “Dad, I knew it would be good, but I never realized it could be this good…” That said it all to me.
    When we made the decision for my daughter to attend The Academy of Saint Elizabeth, we found her academic home. She is intellectually stimulated by the coursework offered including the option of college level courses through the CollegeNow program. She became part of a school community which embraced her and our family. She joined clubs, played sports and made honor roll. Finding The Academy of St Elizabeth has been a gift and one that will give my daughter an unbelievable foundation to build her future. I believe she will graduate from AOSE with a strong sense of who she is as a young woman with the confidence and skills to make a difference in the world. The Academy of Saint Elizabeth is a gift to its students and their families!
