AHF provides solid, college preparatory academics, within a nurturing environment. The sports and community service projects are wonderful! The kind, friendly warm spirit which IS the Academy resonates from AHF from the moment you enter its doors. Your daughter's spiritual life and academic life will be well-nourished. The Sisters, staff and teachers are kind,caring and intelligent . The Academy educates the "whole" person! Ronnie O, 2012

I highly recommend this school. Our daughter entered AHF after briefly attending public high school. Her nerves were quickly soothed, as were mine, we she was welcomed with open arms by the staff and students. She quickly became involved in clubs and sports. The school holds high standards for all students, placing academics at the forefront. The class sizes are small, ensuring individualized attention. Teachers were more than willingly to stay after school on their own time to help my daughter. The administration was fair and involved me in all decision making processes. My daughter developed strong friendships with the girls in all classes. She was exposed to diverse populations, which only improved my child's character. I cannot say enough good things about this school. It is without reservation that I endorse this school for high academic standards, fair practices, and diverse populations. ~Cynthia H., parent of 2011 graduate

We heartily recommend AHF. At the public school, our daughter became friends with girls who had a lot of problems, and these girls were a bad influence on her. We moved her to a co-ed Catholic high school which was better, but we felt she was still too distracted by dramas and wasn t working up to what we thought was her potential. We would not let her participate in extra-curriculars until her grades improved. We sent her to AHF which she didn't like at first, but slowly her grades did improve and she began to like it. She participated in sports and excelled, increasing her self-confidence. She made dear friends, and these friends were a good influence on her. She also received a fine religious education, which helped with her character development. Just graduated, she's showing greater maturity and becoming a fine young lady. We have the highest regard for the sisters at AHF who have dedicated their entire lives to the academic and spiritual development of these girls. Their efforts help the girls make the most of their God-given talents so that they can make both sound life choices and moral decisions, enabling them to bring Christ to others. Michael B., parent

This is an exceptional all-girl's catholic high school which taught me incredible lessons; not only lessons relating to academics, but also lessons on life. I'm so grateful to have become an alumni of such an outstanding catholic institution. Along with my parents' upbringing, the academy of the holy family is the reason I believed that providing a catholic education for my children from early on, would be the only resolve in helping them become the individuals god requires of them. Thank you for everything!

Academy of the Holy Family is in our district. They help young women develop into exceptional citizens of the world, with good values and commitment to Catholic ideals. They operate on limited budgets and could use all the help they can get. This school is worthy of any help they can get. Thank you.

The Academy has an excellent and unique learning environment. It's student body bonds as a family in the wonderful small school environment provided. The administration and staff go out of their way to help the students be prepared for life after high school. It's a wonderful school to attend, coming from a graduate.

AHF is a small school where each girl receives individualized attention. Nobody 'falls through the cracks'. One teacher in particular went out of her way to help my daughter pass one of her final exams last year and it was greatly appreciated. This would have never happened in another school.

At the Academy of the Holy Family, they live up to their motto, 'Where Friends become Family!'. The faculty (sisters and lay) and staff are genuinely concerned with each and every student.

I was concerned about the environment in today s public schools and looking for an EXCEPTIONAL education rich in tradition, academics, sports, activities and fun. The Academy of the Holy Family was able to offer small classes, individualized attention and guidance in a private, all girls, Roman Catholic setting in rural New England. Not only is the Academy of the Holy Family where friends become family , it is also WHERE YOUNG GIRLS LEARN TO BECOME YOUNG WOMEN I wouldn t think of sending my daughter anywhere else!

In my experiences about schools in America, I would think that Academy of the Holy Family is the best school. I say that Academy is the best school because it is safe for the young girls. It offers exceptional education that includes academics,discipline and , sports. This school's advantage is that the teachers and sisters offer attention to each student. This school also has tours often so the students can relax their minds.This school guides the student for their future. This is why Academy of the Holy Family is the best school in America

The Academy is an excellent place for young girls to grow. Being a student there from 1998 to 2002 I was in no way sheltered from learning about diversity, if anything the academy offers a unique opportunity for its girls to excel because of the many different origins attending the school. My time at the academy was the best and prepared me to reach my goals in college and in graduate school. When I first started at the academy in 1998 I was shy and thought to myself okay this is going to get some taking used to. But by my second year there I learned to love it! The academy became my home away from home and my second family. I love the girls that I went to school with and was blessed to have a graduating class of 13 because every single girl I knew and loved.

The Academy of the Holy Family is an excellent school designed to help students reach their goals, whatever they may be. Throughout my time as a student there, I was given the chance to excel and if help was needed, all I had to do was ask. The teachers there are kind, caring and wonderful people who seek to help the students out as best they can and at the same time nurture a sense of respect and independence within the girls attending the school. There are always opportunities for the girls to join sports, drama or any of the other extracurricular activities that the school offers, and having a small attendance record only opens up the opportunity more so for the student, rather than hindering them and fostering a negative feeling of having to compete. All in all, the Academy is a great school and I highly recommend it.

Having been a student at the Academy from 92' - 96', I have to say that by no means was a student's ability to learn about the country stifled. The teachers and students all brought out ideas, customs and thoughts to share with one another on a daily basis. The faculty is caring, compassionate and wonderful. No where else would you find the different backgrounds that you find at this school. No where else will you find friendships forged for years and years to come. The teachers at the Academy care about every aspect of the students and their lives. When I have a daughter, I will certainly enroll her at the Academy. It would be a shame for a young woman to miss out on the wonderful people and learning that can be found there.

The perfect school to develop young ladies. Sports programs reach out to all 55 students allowing for 100% participation for willing girls. The atiquated, sheltered environment provided by the religious staff hinders the social development of the girls. Sheltered from the country that their parents chose for their daughters education, the resident students experience little of the benefits of an education in the USA.
