My grandmother Wilhelmina Schneider went to St Elizabeth's. Both of her parents had died by the time she was 12. She came from a small town in Georgia. Her father was the richest man in town. In his will he said that he wanted his daughter to be raised by the nuns and to attend St Elizabeth's at Covent Station New Jersey. It was a boarding school. She graduated 115 years ago. The nuns taught her how to paint china. I have a beautiful collection of china that she painted while attending the school.

My daughter is a Freshman and absolutely loves it! The campus is big and beautiful with athletic fields, tennis courts, and a swimming pool, and the classes are small (12-14). The buildings itself are authentic, with a brand new science lab. The curriculum is challenging and the teachers are interested and helpful. The Varsity sports teams are great, and everyone can play the sport they want. Also, St. E's is the only school with an all year round Equestrian team!

The Academy of Saint Elizabeth has been a positive experience for my daughter. She has been able to explore a variety of interests as a novice that she would not have been able to at our public high school. The small class size allows her to have a relationship with each one of her teachers past and present, who are invested in her success. I am watching as the Academy of Saint Elizabeth is fostering my daughter and her classmates in becoming confident young women and our future leaders.

This school has been a positive and challenging experience for our daughter. She came from a public school and has thrived with the academic challenges of the honors and AP classes. She has improved on on her PSAT scores each year, and the school is focused on getting girls to the next level. With a small school, they have challenged her to be a leader and join clubs and participate in sports, all things that she would not have done in the local public school. She has risen to the challenge. My daughter is looking forward to succeeding in the next level of education, and becoming a leader in the community due to the teachings at AOSE. The faculty encourages her to be the best person she can become and she has thrived at the school. The school is also conveniently located on the Morris & Essex line of NJ transit which, while a worry at first, has turned into a positive experience of meeting other students from both AOSE and other schools on the train line. I highly recommend the Academy of Saint Elizabeth. The single sex education has been something that both my wife and myself wish that we had had while growing up after seeing the positive results in our daughter.
