According to AHA officials, the Academy of the Holy Angels, as the National Catholic Educational Association (, hosts Discover Catholic Schools Week: November 13-19.

Founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1879, Holy Angels is Bergen County, New Jersey’s oldest private all-girl school.

While AHA is steeped in Catholic tradition, this prestigious school serves young women from many backgrounds. A high percentage of Angels earn acceptance into their first-choice colleges and universities.

As a class, AHA seniors receive millions of dollars in scholarships to fund their undergraduate studies.

AHA Admissions Director Michèle McGovern and Assistant Director Jennifer Bullis have planned a series of engaging events that will be held during and after DCSW, officials say.
