SSND Sponsorship

One Mind – One Heart – One Spirit

The charism and educational vision of the School Sisters of Notre Dame permeate life at AHA. That vision is found in the Constitution of the Schools Sisters of Notre Dame, You Are Sent:

“For us, School Sisters of Notre Dame, education means 

enabling persons to reach the fullness of their potential 

as individuals created in God’s image and assisting them to direct their gifts toward building the earth. 

Like Mother Theresa, we educate with the conviction that 

the world can be changed through the transformation of persons. 

Thus, our ministry demands a Christian vision of 

what the human person is called to be and 

what the world is destined to become.” You Are Sent, #22, 1986.


Blessed Theresa of Jesus

The School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND) were founded in 1833 in Bavaria, Germany.  Today, School Sisters of Notre Dame are found in 30 countries around the globe.  The Academy is part of a global network of SSND schools in the United States and throughout the world.


Sisters of the SSND Atlantic Midwest Province decided that the primary social and ecological issues of concern for the province would be visible in province commitments to “the dignity of life and the care of all creation,” with the five primary focus areas of Addressing Climate Change, Promoting Justice for Immigrants, Ending Trafficking, Dismantling Racism, and Working toward Sustainable Development in Haiti.


Dare to Care!



Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger

The spiritual energy and moral purpose of Holy Angels is rooted in the soul and traditions of Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger, the SSND foundress (1797-1879).
