Holy Names Academy Reviews

Holy Names is such a wonderful school. It has helped shape me into a strong young woman. The environment of the school promotes women empowerment. Holy Names is a college preparatory school and has helped me prepare for my future in college. The teachers there are the some of the best of the best. They genuinely want the students succeed, and will make time out of their schedules to help students when needed. Assemblies and events create a great sense of school spirit and community. Volunteer/Service work is an important aspect of the school that promotes the school's core values of following the teachings of Jesus. I am honestly glad that they incorporate this in the curriculum because the place I had volunteered at has helped further my interests in pursuing a career of International Relations/Affairs. Holy Names is one of the best things that has ever happened in my life

Holy Names Academy has prepared me for college in a way that no other school could have. They teach their students proper study methods and time management to conquer complex academic courses. A diverse population helps promote inclusivity and empowers all young girls to develop into strong women. Through the rigorous academics and completive environment, Holy Names Academy students are capable of succeeding in all their pathway of choice after high school.
My first two years at Holy Names were very rough because the student environment was harsh coming in. I only knew a few people and it was very cliquey (which is to be expected at high schools in general). In addition, it was difficult to adjust to the homework load. Something very positive for me was the musical theater program at Holy Names which was one of the ways in which I was able to find my "tribe" of friends and support network in the school. The arts program is really supportive, although very small and somewhat underfunded, it really helped to make my experience at HNA a more positive one. I think that if you are a person who is feeling conflicted about whether or not to go to this school I would say that it is a really good opportunity. The learning environment is really positive and focused, I personally believe it will be the best possible education you could receive as a female identifying teen in Seattle.
