The Academy of the Holy Names has offered my daughter a structured, safe and challenging environment for learning. The teachers work very hard at making sure the students work to their full potential. They definitely recognize each girl's gifts and individual needs, and the teachers and staff are both professional and caring.
This school will teach your daughter to walk with her head high and great self-confidence. The girls are taught to honor them selves as well as others work hard and persevere. They have a fantastic science research program for a motivated girl who wants to prove herself and science. These girls go to top break colleges due to the background they`ve received at holy names
This is an excellent school where girls learn to be confident leaders. They combine great academics with lots of strong activities and always focus on inclusion, kindness and acceptance.
