Academy of the Holy Names Reviews

While my years at Holy Names have prepared me well for my college journey, I wish there was more opportunities to student focus on visual and preforming arts studies rather than mostly focusing on science and mathematics courses. That being said, the school administration is constantly working to improve the school’s environment and present their students with an ever-evolving learning environment throughout the introduction of new technology and by hiring teachers that are enthusiastic and focused on developing each girl to their greatest potential.

I've been at AHN since grade 7. I was shy and nervous because it was an All-Girl school, but in reality, it was way better than I expected! The sense of community is incredible, and are all like family- we are so tight knit. I went to AHN after spending my childhood in a big public school. Going to Holy Names has helped me grow into a young, independent woman. They help you gain the confidence you need to succeed, and prepare you immensely for college. AHN has changed my life forever, and I am eternally grateful for all that it has done for me. I know my future is bright, and it's because of the faculty and staff at Holy names who have helped me achieve.
As a parent, I am very happy with Holy Names. The school addresses all aspects of the student's education. The teachers are great, the administration cares, and the students all are well prepared for college and life. We are very glad we found AHN!
