We are experts at educating girls

Here is a simple fact proved by research: Girls who attend single-sex schools have higher SAT scores than girls at coed schools. Now, consider this additional fact, also supported by research: Girls at all girls schools spend more time studying, talking with teachers outside the classroom, studying with others, and tutoring classmates.

At Academy of the Holy Names we believe this research shows what happens when a girl is encouraged to feel comfortable about who she is, and when she feels supported by her teachers and classmates.

We know that's why our students succeed. 

We encourage our students to participate, to express their ideas, and to take charge of their own lives. We challenge them to achieve. Why does research show that girls at all girls schools are more likely to pursue a career in engineering?

Because they are inspired to explore and break the molds. Because they are following in the footsteps of all the other girls who have blazed the trail before them.



Our teachers are given the freedom and time to develop true insight into each and every one of their students. They are skilled at identifying individual and group teaching techniques that encourage and inspire lively discussions and respectful exchange of ideas. At Holy Names, every girl has a voice.

A Holy Names education consistently delivers both tangible and intangible returns on the investment through the depth of the curriculum, the unparalleled support services, 专家团队, and the emphasis on character development. 

Are supported while challenged

Our academic programs are challenging. That’s why our students go on to succeed at top colleges and universities. Faculty members do all they can – in and out of class – to make certain each student understands course content. Students don’t get lost at Academy of the Holy Names. In fact, they find their love of learning.
