Welcome to AHA Admissions

AHA is a Catholic, coeducational, college-prep high school in Richfield, Minnesota, where students strive to reach their God-given potential by Achieving, Leading and Serving.  Our motto is BELIEVE. ACHIEVE!

AHA has over 600 gifted and wonderful students enrolled in ninth through twelfth grades.  Our students are from diverse cultural, socioeconomic and religious backgrounds.  Our location in Richfield is literally the junction between city and suburban.  For the 2014-15 school year, AHA has enrolled 28 international students from five different countries.  We're diverse in so many ways!

We hope you find our admissions pages useful and enjoyable. However, there is no substitute for a campus visit. Whether you come to an Open House, a school-day visit, a campus family tour, or other special event, our doors are open to you and your family.   We're looking forward to seeing you!

We also offer Parent Observations to spend some time on campus during the morning to observe classrooms and see AHA academics through the lens of a student. We schedule these parent visits each month, from 8:00 until 9:30.  Please refer to our Visit page to learn more about these opportunities.

Our entire school community is standing ready to help you become a STAR! Complete an online inquiry here - this will ensure you receive updates and mailings from the AHA Admissions Office.
