    Holy Names High School Reviews

    My experience at HNHS was absolutely incredible. The all-girls experience allows young women at the school to discover themselves academically, socially, & artistically in a safe environment that fosters growth. At HNHS, I explored my passion for theater, leadership, music, & global immersion -- all at once. I was exposed to a variety of opportunities, such as the Peer Mediation program, one that was developed when I was a freshman (2015), that allows students to resolve conflicts in a safe space on campus. When I was a junior (2017-18), I had the lifechanging opportunity to travel to Kenya with a group of students through a program called Powerful Beyond Measure. I would not have been able to experience conflict resolution & immersive travel without the support of the HNHS community. My experience at HNHS was both unique & lifechanging -- & I truly believe that experiences like mine are particular to Holy Names. After all, you cannot receive the Noblesse Oblige spirit anywhere else!

    Holy Names High School is truly a special place. It has the ability to bring out the confidence in one. I remember I would dread to raise my hand in middle school because I felt as if I was not smart enough, but Holy Names has helped me grow confidence and realize that I am truly smart. The confidence it has helped me develop allowed me to grow both personally and academically. For that, I truly believe that I am prepared to go to college and prove to myself that I can do it. Holy Names not only cares about ones academics, but they also make sure that their students are doing well, emotionally and mentally, due to the size of the school. The small schools provides students to have the ability to have a true relationship with their teachers. Holy Names wants the best for their students and they truly do that by always trying to improve.
    Holy Names High School is a school designed to empower young women. Before I came to Holy Names High School, I was less confident and didn't have faith in myself to become a leader. Now, as a senior, I participate in various clubs and have even traveled to Kenya as part of a program named Powerful Beyond Measure. Without Holy Names High School, I wouldn't have known my full potential and be the person I am today.
