Academy of the Holy Names Reviews

I attended Holy Names for 14 years. Growing up in an all-girl, private, Catholic, college-preparatory school had its challenges but has shaped me into the intelligent, conscientious, confident young woman I am today. During my years there, I did not always appreciate its small and comforting atmosphere- it was not until I was in a new world on my own at college that I realized how fortunate I was to attend such a school and receive the education I did. I became more aware of how prepared I was for college and the real world until I conversed with other students at my university about school. Holy Names was an incredible place to grow and learn, and I am extremely proud to be an alum.

Being an all girls school, you would think the school would have more feminist ideals, but instead, it has very traditional values and gender norms. Either way, the school prepared me very well for college -- and beyond. In fact, college seemed easy after going to Holy Names.
The administration is just okay -- very traditional, but the teachers are the best part of Holy Names -- they are funny, empathetic, intelligent, and loving. I think about them often and will always keep them in my heart. But overall, I am so grateful to have had the privilege to go to Holy Names, it is a really great school with great academics.
The community is like no other, everyone is family here. I love that I know everyone's name, and everyone smiles when you pass in the hallway, no one looks down at their feet awkwardly. This school is service-oriented. Everyone is always ready to lend a helping hand. The teachers offer a nurturing environment, students are pushed because the teachers see our potential.
