Academy of the Holy Family


Recommended Posts

The Academy of the Holy Family, a Catholic secondary Day and Boarding school for young women, was founded in 1874 in Baltic, Connecticut. The Academy is approved by the State of Connecticut and is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. It is owned and operated by the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady, Mother of the Church. The Order’s General Counsel, along with a new group of stakeholders, forms the Academy’s Advisory Board.
Through a challenging curriculum built on a supportive spiritual foundation, we empower young women from the United States and around the globe to achieve their full God-given potential to impact their world.
Because of its commitment to any girl who seeks such an environment regardless of ethnic background, country of origin, color, creed, or the economic status of her family, the Academy makes every effort to maintain as low a tuition base as is possible, making quality Catholic education financially feasible.
Our work continues, and our mission is maintained. We are committed to guiding our students as they grow into young women of faith, intelligence, and strength.
What do girls’ schools do best? A lot! “Whether they want to be astronauts, ambassadors, or accountants, girls need to know- not just think- that nothing can stand in their way.” (National Coalition of Girls’ Schools) This is what we do at the Academy of the Holy Family every day.
Tomorrow’s leaders walk in our halls today. Come and see what life is like at the Academy of the Holy Family! We are 146 years old and proud that we cherish our traditions while looking ahead to the future. Whether you are already a member of our school community or are interested in learning more about us as a prospective student, parent/guardian or teacher, we hope that this web presence will enable you to view the enthusiasm and vitality that continues to define the AHF experience as we excitedly prepare to begin our 146th year of delivering a valid education to young women that are based on the Gospel of Christ.
At the center of the AHF experience, you will find our students and teachers coming together as a community of teachers and learners in an environment that encourages the development of curious, lifelong learners. In every corner of our beautiful campus and beyond, you will find success stories where students and adults learn from each other and grow together. The walls of traditional classrooms do not contain the cycle of learning, as is evidenced by our participation in online classes. Our dedicated faculty comprises members of the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady, Mother of the Church, and laymen and women. They are all professional educators who understand the challenges of delivering curricula to young women. As an alumna of an all-girl, Catholic high school, I can personally attest to the fact that an education in a setting such as the Academy of the Holy Family is a gift beyond compare. Here is a place where young women’s gifts of leadership are cultivated, the palettes that contain the multitude of their bits of intelligence are celebrated. They are allowed to discover the multitude of possibilities that lie before them.
We hope that our website answers as many questions as you might have, but there is genuinely no substitute for visiting the Academy. On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff, I invite you to visit the place that we call “home” to see, firsthand, how we bring such a diverse group of young women together to build one community. Our motto is, “Where friends become family!” Spend some time at AHF, and you will see why generations of young women have made that phrase a reality. The Academy of the Holy Family: where the leaders of tomorrow walk our halls today.
