AHA Hosts ‘Drive-Thru’ Celebration for the Class of 2025

A special drive-thru celebration allowed members of the Academy of the Holy Angels Class of 2025 to enjoy a warm welcome to the school on a frosty January day. AHA Admissions Director Michèle McGovern and Assistant Director Jennifer Bullis organized the COVID conscious event so future Angels and their families could drive up to the front of the school and leave with greetings and gifts.


The nationally-ranked AHA Dance Team was also on hand, and performed throughout the day.


“Our celebratory drive-thru for the Class of 2025 was a huge success,” McGovern reported. “We welcomed so many of our accepted families who picked up goody bags filled with Chef Russell’s famous cookies, an official wings certificate, and bingo cards for the New Student Virtual Meet and Greet.” McGovern added that a high percentage of accepted students eagerly participated in the online event, and several shared positive feedback.


“This was a very fun and bonding experience! I hope to see the girls soon again!” one young woman said. Another shared, “I am truly excited to become a part of the AHA family.”


The resourceful, resilient members of the AHA community continue to develop pandemic-safe ways to provide Angels with an exceptional education (hybrid, virtual, or in-person), recognize students’ achievements, and stay connected to current and future families.


Founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1879, the Academy of the Holy Angels is the oldest private girls’ school in Bergen County. While AHA is steeped in Catholic tradition, this prestigious high school serves young women from varied cultural and religious backgrounds.
