College Preparatory Academics

For more than 100 years, within the context of the Gospel message, Holy Name High School has been preparing young men and young women for college and for life. Strong academics have always been at the heart of the Holy Name experience. The academic life at Holy Name seeks to produce a well-rounded individual with a strong background for the rigors of higher education and a strong character for the rigors of life.

Students at Holy Name are encouraged on a daily basis to strive for excellence in all they pursue. Those achievements not only serve the student well, but also those whose lives are touched by that student.

A rigorous program of studies, together with the support and encouragement designed to promote the fulfillment of the individual student’s potential, forms the basis of the academic life at Holy Name High School.
