I attended an open house at HFA on 4/10/11 and was very impressed with the programs offered. The school is progressive, forward thinking and is currently thinking outside the box to solve problems that arise. They currently have their Latin class skyped in from a teacher in Wisconsin and have reported excellent results with this class. Seniors have opportunity for AP classes through nearby colleges. Of major interest is the fact that this year the senior class, made up of 49 young women, earned 17 million in college scholarships. Obviously, this school is an excellent investment in your daughter's education. In my opinion, HFA's logo should be HFA: Women of Worth. Finally, the school is conveniently located near the 8th Station N.J. Lightrail stop making it convenient for girls from Hudson, Bergen and Essex counties to commute to.

Holy Family Academy of Bayonne offers a very broad curriculum for such a small school. I beleive the money you invest in a high school education at HFA pays for itself immediately as the scholarship offers start coming in with the college acceptance letters. Each and every student at HFA gets accepted into college and most years 100% attend.

HFA is the best option for girls in Bayonne and the surrounding area. It is a Catholic school but does not push the faith on anyone. The school shapes young women with morals, values, and self-respect. HFA has academic options for girls at any level: Honors, AP, and regular College Prep. HFA girls not only get accepted and go to college but also graduate. Most schools brag of college acceptance but HFA can boost of college attendance and graduation. The young alumni who frequently come back to visit there alma mater tell stories of college success. Extra-circulars are numerous. Sports frequently win championships. Dance Troupe and art students are being constantly awarded. Clubs are numerous and students are always welcome to start there own.

HFA Rocks, its my home from home. Block scheduling makes for giving me great choices. I can take AP course without having to carry 6+ subjects at the same time. Small classes, great teachers, county champions. Great goods in small packages.
