The Academy of the Holy Family (AHF), a Catholic high school for young women, was founded in 1874.
We are located in the New England countryside approximately two hours away from Boston and three hours from New York City.
The Academy has educated young women from the United States and abroad.
A tight-knit school community, AHF offers its students the opportunity to express their faith and learn in a comfortable atmosphere.
Classes are small, enabling students to receive individual attention. Courses offered include college prep, honors and some advanced placement classes.
Our international students have English as a Second Language (ESL) and English for ESL classes.
The faculty consists of both religious and lay persons. At the Academy we strive to "Pursue knowledge; embrace the truths of Christ; respond to the needs of others." Our young women are confident, active in the community and graduate from AHF, ready to attend various colleges and universities.
We often hear from our alumnae and realize the impact the Academy has made on them- successful careers, yes, as well as bringing a sense of family to wherever their path in life has taken them.
