    A positive encouraging learning environment. Teachers and staff that truly care about their students. A commitment to academics. A commitment to technology.

    Holy Name High School is true to its mission. They truly care about the students and the extra mile on everything they do. It truly is a faith-based community where the spiritual academic and human formation of my child was the focus of the entire faculty and staff. No other school in the area has made such a commitment to academic excellence as has HN. Technology is a major focus and our child is the beneficiary of this emphasis. However most importantly it is a Catholic school that truly emphasizes the importance of the faith and how important it is for my child to stay connected to her faith.

    My son had the courage to leave the Public School in our area and to attend Holy Name H.S. beginning in his sophmore year. I am now sure this is the best gift we could have ever given our son and I am thankful and so proud of him that he had the courage to make the change. He is now a Senior and an Honor Student at Holy Name. Since his sophmore year he has had the opportunity to make great friends andto have an excellent education. At Holy Name he has been in a positive learning environment where the teachers and staff view each and every student and as a unique individual with their own gifts and talents and he has also had the opportunity to have teachers/mentors that truely care. Much Praise to Holy Name H.S. DMF
