Academy of Holy Angels


Recommended Posts

Academy of Holy Angels is a Catholic, coeducational, college preparatory high school community in Richfield, Minnesota. It consists of students, professional staff, parents, alumni, and friends who are actively committed to a common goal: educating each student for life. Mindful that each of us is created in God's image, we respect each other, serve those in need, embrace each other's differences, and are welcoming to those who wish to interact with our community. AHA nurtures students to become confident, prepared, connected in faith, and ready for college and life.
The mission of the Academy of Holy Angels is to educate and nurture a diverse student population so that each student, as a whole person, may achieve full potential to excel intellectually, to live spiritually, to lead responsibly, to act justly, and to serve selflessly.
We offer many opportunities for families to experience our welcoming school community. Those include campus visits, personal tours, school-day visits, parent observation mornings, open houses, and special events. All of these are great ways to see what AHA is about and help families with their high school decision-making process.
We are committed to increasing student achievement. Preparing our students for the future and the ethical use of technology is integral to that goal. Incorporating digital tools into each part of the curriculum helps us ensure that all AHA students are ready for the technology demands of college, career, and life.
AHA has been putting a computing device in the hands of every student since 2007. AHA provides services such as Moodle, Google Apps for Education (email, storage, etc.) and Google Classroom, where students get daily assignment descriptions, find resources, and turn in electronic work. Our students tell us that they are more organized, confident, and better prepared for the world beyond AHA.
Upon any new student's arrival at AHA, students immediately become familiarized with primary software and hardware. They learn core software used in AHA classes and about AHA's ethical use guidelines. This begins the process of students learning the skills colleges like Notre Dame tell us our students need for success. Learning specific software is embedded into the curriculum across subjects, with science, for example, focusing on teaching students to gather data with their computer, analyze graphs and translate it into reports and other communication. Select Fine Arts classes like Digital Photography and Computer Art give students real-life skills in transforming photos.
