Welcome to Holy Angels Admissions

What our families are saying:

"We are currently on our third child at Academy of Holy Angels and couldn’t be  happier about the decision to send all three to this wonderful institution.  It all started when our oldest son was in eighth grade.  He started attending athletic and theater events at AHA with a good friend of his whose older siblings attended.  He soon started to talk a lot about the school and how comfortable he felt when he was there.  He was currently attending a large public school and this middle-sized setting felt comfortable for him.  We started out touring the school and talked to the faculty and administration, and everything fell into place from there.  The smaller classroom size gave the academic attention that our son needed to keep him focused.  And the athletic programs allowed him to excel and become a captain in two different sports.  As a family, we have felt this is one of the best decisions we have ever made for our kids."
