My daughter is a freshman this year. As we were looking for a school last year, we looked for somewhere that had strong academics, give her a opportunity to participate in sports and most of all somewhere that would have a culture that speaks to the students, asking them to be inclusive and do on to
... Read more others as you would have them do to you. At the start of the information gathering process, AHA began to separate it self from the other schools, they spent time understanding my daughter, where she was Academically and how they could take her so she would be ready for AP classes by senior year, so she was set to be competitive when she wants to go to college. Beyond that she was playing Hockey and tennis, getting to know the other students over the summer. By the time school started, she had many good friends, and that has only continued. The fall football games, the social for the students, all seek to get the students together and have some fun. She has had allot of homework, but she is getting it done and the teachers are available if she has questions. I have been very impressed with how much everyone at AHA cares about my daughter and how she is doing. THANK YOU AHA!! Read less

Holy Angels has been a disappointment. It is a slacker school. The academics are poor and admissions misplace people in the wrong classes.At an open house they were all happy like "welcome to holy angels", when during a school day it is really like a prison ran by the populars. The teachers can not control
... Read more the students either. As for the students they are mostly city kids who act like they own the show. If you drink and do drugs this is a great school for you. You will make friends easily if you have horrible values. Project laptop is a scam and the student also throws their back out from carrying the computer in the backpack. Teachers also don't care and do not enjoy what they are doing. So many kids cheat in class and the sad part is that the teachers do not even stop it. Many kids come from feeder schools in Eagan and Savage. These clicks stay the same. They make up 75% of the student body. Sports are average. Theater is average. I just can't believe I wasted two of my precious years there before transferring. Also it is inner city and has an urban environment so you here sirens every week. People who think they are "all that" go to AHA. Please don't waste your money here. Read less

True, you get out what you put into it BUT as a parent you must understand there s still politics going on, private catholic school or not. There s St. John s, the feeder school sending a significant numbers to AHA, don t be na ve to believe there isn t favoritism/preference given to those students!
... Read more i.e. coaches kids are captains of teams whether or not they re leaders or barely average players. For a school with all the religion/social moral type classes, why all the video cameras in the halls? Reason; calculators go missing, lockers broken into, car keys stolen, cars broken into and the dean of students has an deal with Richfield Police, (this is totally whack!) where if the stolen item is returned, the perp goes free, a get out of jail free card! Don t believe for a second that President J. Reilly wasn t aware of this. IMHO, it s best that she is gone!! Re: academics, DeLaSalle sends kids to the Ivies, Breck, Blake, SPA, Edina too but not AHA. Top colleges must not like this school! Outstanding Theatre program, love the band instructor, terrible terrible top Math classes and no science enrichment going on. Open enroll ur student at a public school or home school! Read less

Academy of Holy Angels has an absolutely beautiful building and is filled with rich history. However, there academics are not what I expected and I feel that all they care about is sports and money. The teachers do not have any control over their students whatsoever. In fact, yesterday in one of the
... Read more classes the substitute that was hired allowed the students to flip their desks over and use them as imaginary boats while the rest of the students hollered and lounged around. The environment of the students is awful. Majority of them are conceited and unfriendly. The social life is just awful and I do not enjoy it here. The only things I comment on is the buliding itself, the history, and the arts department. I do mean to offend anyone, but this is my opinion. I do not reccomend this academy at all. Read less

Holy Angels is the BEST investment you will ever make for your child.Our son attended public school k-8,was a quiet well behaved middle to low student who struggled in certain academic areas.He has blossomed at AHA. The class sizes are low, the teachers are happy, the administrators are welcome to feedback
... Read more and the entire school is nurturing. The first day of 9th grade my son got in the car and thanked me for sending him there.There are payment plans,financial assistance-do not think it is unaffordable. We never thought we would send him to private and now he is a senior-he also remarked his friends he left behind at public hs have told him they hate it and hope the year flies by. He said "how sad is that" Go Stars! Read less

I am a former student. I attended during the 90's. The academics when I attended were excellent, as I am sure they are now. If your child needs to be challenged, and you can afford their tuition, I recommend it highly. It's also a wonderful school for any child who is interested in theatrical arts.
... Read more They teach everything from basic acting, to very advanced theatrical method method and design. Politics is where my rating goes down. My experience was if you came from a well off family or excelled at sports you were given preferential treatment. I still support the school, as a whole, to those students who will thrive within their system and benefit from the areas which they excel. If tuition will be a challenge, I suggest you make the best you can with public schools and reach out for advanced classed and outside extracurricular activities. Read less

I disagree with the above reviews stating that a kid has to be in sports to be noticed. A kid is noticed by excelling in what they do; whether it is academics, sports, service or whatever. The key to success to to get involved and to get results. We love AHA and believe that the education is second to

AHA could be a great school - but it's all about money and sports. If your kids isn't into sports, that's not seen very well. We removed our 2 kids during the school year. Also the $3000 laptop we have to lease from the school is a real scam.
