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!
Holy Names provides a wonderful education to girls ages 6-12 and allows girls to find their passion and voice. As an alumnae, I personally experienced this when I attended Holy Names for grades 9-12 and I truly believe Holy Names shaped me into the person I am today. I was able to build strong relationships with faculty, staff, and peers across all grade levels, many of which continue today. At Holy Names, there is a true sense of community that carries when you leave the school. I have made lifelong friends through Holy Names and am forever grateful to the faculty and staff for setting me up for success and helping me find my passion.
