Encore to Follow Successful Upper School Fall Open House

STEM demo in the Spola Lab.

Prospective Angels and their families enjoyed taking a closer look at Academy of the Holy Angels during the October 1 Upper School Fall Open House. Guests appreciated AHA’s personalized approach, which included tours led by friendly, knowledgeable Angel Ambassadors; opportunities to speak with faculty, staff, and representatives from student-led clubs; live music; and a fabulous demo by the nationally recognized AHA Dance Team.


Admissions Director Stephanie Dowling and Assistant Director Melani Salibian organized the event, which is AHA’s best-attended program of the year.


One parent shared that this year’s Fall Open House was the best she has ever attended.


Speakers included AHA President Melinda Hanlon; Principal Jean Miller, an AHA alumna; Academic Dean Carmen Quiñones, whose daughters are AHA alumnae; Director of Mission & Ministry Joan Connelly; and Finance Director Glenn Núñez.


Several cameras came out as families spotted important information about upcoming SSAT exams and a Zoom meeting that will be hosted by the finance department.


Prospective Angels will have additional opportunities to learn more about AHA in the coming months.

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 school serves young women from many cultural and religious backgrounds. AHA’s current leaders continue to further the SSND mission to provide each student with the tools she needs to reach the fullness of her potential—spiritually, intellectually, socially, and physically, by offering a first-rate education in a nurturing environment where equal importance is placed on academic excellence, character development, moral integrity, and service to others.
