Supportive, academically challenging, forward thinking school that develops leaders for tomorrow. Could not be happier with my child's experience. This is not your old fashion Catholic school, it is developing students with leadership, critical thinking, problem solving and 21st century skills simultaneously creating moral and ethical difference makers.
We've had two children at All Hallows for the past three years and can't believe how lucky we were to find this gem "on the hill". The leadership by principal is stellar in her vision for the school, passion for not only the best faculty and academics, but her ability to truly form a sense of community with the parents too. Feel truly blessed to be a part of AHA and very happy with the education and faith formation our children receive here. Top notch!
In amazing and everyday ways...from the leadership and administration to the faculty, the mission and catholic virtues are not only upheld, but taught by example. It's evident with the middle school to the Kindergarten class what is expected and how to live these virtues in your daily life.
All Hallows Academy (AHA) is an outstanding catholic school. Focused on academics and helping parents raise good people. Not afraid to teach kids right from wrong. I'm most impressed with the level of parental involvement in the classroom and with extra-curricular activities (Theater, Sports, Cultural Arts, Field Trips, & Community Outreach). The parents are a major factor in making this school great. This is our seventh year as parents at AHA. We have 4 kids in grades 2 - 8. The best value for a private school in La Jolla!
Our child attended All Hallows Academy, La Jolla for over a year, K through beginning of 1st grade. We found that it had (a) no real investment in the well being of our child, (b) no problem solving strategy when confronted with issues between children, and (c) invested more in their own self-interest than in doing what was truly best for the children involved. We came to believe that was lots of fluff, with a lack of inclusiveness and self-consistency.
We are extremely happy at AHA, primarily because of the small size, the caring teachers, principal and staff and the sense of community. The facilities have been substantially upgraded and are amazing.
