Is financial aid available?
Yes, during the 2012-2013 school year, nearly a third (31.2%) of all HNA students received some level of aid. See Financial Aid for details and deadlines.
Are academic scholarships awarded?
Yes. A limited number of scholarships, either one-time or renewable, are offered at the time of acceptance, and are based on academic merit as shown by the student’s grades, her scores on the HNA Scholarship/Placement Exam, teacher evaluation, school report, and the contents of her application form. No separate application is required for academic scholarships. Consideration for scholarships requires taking the HNA Scholarship/Placement Exam and timely submission of all application materials.
When will I know if my daughter is admitted?
Decision letters for the Class of 2017 are scheduled to be mailed on Thursday, February 14, 2013. For transfer students applying to enter Grades 10 or higher at Holy Names Academy, decision letters will be mailed in late April 2013.
Is there a wait-list?
Applicants who meet HNA’s admissions criteria may sometimes be placed on a wait-list in February if the number of qualified applicants exceeds the capacity of the incoming 9th-grade class. Applicants on that wait-list will hear from the school no later than June; those who cannot be accommodated must subsequently re-apply for admission as a transfer student. There are no other wait-lists, such as a wait-list for applications.
