Welcome Class of 2024

Greetings Students and Families,


It is with great excitement and joy that we welcome you, the newest members of the Monarch family, to Holy Names High School!


At Holy Names, each girl matters. When the HNHS staff and current students met each of you and learned more about who you are, it became clear that you possess amazing gifts and unique qualities that enrich the lives of those around you. We invite you to join the HNHS school community, because we believe in your voice, power and potential.


Mother Marie-Rose Durocher, foundress of the Sisters of Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, believed that it was important to educate girls, even though it was uncommon to do so during her time. Now more than ever, we need bold and courageous girls and women leading in our communities, our country and our world. Since our opening in 1868, HNHS has educated thousands of women who embody the core values of faith, scholarship, justice, service and leadership in their daily lives.


At Holy Names, we look forward to all the learning and growth that awaits our future Monarchs. We are Holy Names!
