  • The Academy of the Holy Family (AHF), a Catholic college prep school for young women, was founded in 1874.
  • We are located in the New England countryside approximately two hours away from Boston and three hours from New York City.
  • The Academy has educated young women from the United States and abroad.
  • A tight-knit school community, AHF offers its students the opportunity to express their faith and learn in a comfortable atmosphere.
  • Classes are small, enabling students to receive individual attention.
  • Courses offered include college prep, honors and some advanced placement classes. Our international students have English as a Second Language (ESL) and English for ESL classes.
  • The faculty consists of both religious and lay persons.
  • At the Academy we strive to "Pursue knowledge; embrace the truths of Christ; respond to the needs of others." Our young women are confident, active in the community and graduate from AHF, ready to attend various colleges and universities.
  • We often hear from our alumnae and realize the impact the Academy has made on them- successful careers, yes, as well as bringing a sense of family to wherever their path in life has taken them.
