Your daughter’s high school years are, arguably, some of the most important in her life. She will learn about herself and the world around her, discern her interests and her goals, build relationships with her peers and her instructors, and forge her path forward into adulthood. This is why it is so important that she attends a school that cares deeply about her as an individual and that “recognizes the diversity of intelligence, creativity, and potential inherent in each student.” Immaculate Heart Academy, in Washington Township, New Jersey is that place, designing its programs to “meet the intellectual, spiritual, moral, emotional, social and physical needs” of the young women who make up their student body.
IHA is an all-girls, Catholic regional college preparatory school, operated by the Archdiocese of Newark. Students at IHA come from six New Jersey counties as well as Rockland and Orange Counties in New York. Its mission is to provide quality Catholic education to young women in an atmosphere characterized by respect for the individual, Christian community, and a high level of family involvement. In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, Immaculate Heart Academy offers its students access to the fine arts, a robust roster of extracurricular and enrichment activities, the ability to compete at the highest levels of athletic competition, and a foundation in Christian service. The sisterhood formed at IHA is incomparable, and the memories made there last a lifetime — just ask the more than ten thousand graduates who have graced their halls.
The deadline to apply to join IHA’s class of 2028 is December 1. Young women in the 8th grade who are interested in learning more about IHA and whether they belong at The Heart are invited to become a “Blue Eagle for the Day” and shadow a current student during an academic day in the months of November, December, January, and February. 7th graders interested in IHA are invited to schedule a “Blue Eagle for the Day” visit in March, April, and May.
