We are delighted that you are interested in visiting Academy of the Holy Names!

We welcome interested students to spend a day visiting Holy Names. A "Shadow Day" is truly the best way for prospective students to see what it would be like to attend Holy Names. Prospective students will be matched with a student ambassador who will take them to classes, introduce them to faculty members, and answer their questions. Shadow Days can be scheduled throughout the year by contacting Admissions Director Ann Rento at 518-438-7895 x202 or arento@ahns.org 

Be a Student for a Day

When students visit Holy Names for a day, they experience the school as a student, attending classes and eating lunch with new friends. At the end of the day, we invite parents to meet with Ann Rento, Admissions Director, to review the day, ask any questions, or discuss the next steps in the admissions process. 

On the day of the visit, students are asked to:
  • Arrive at Holy Names at 9:00 a.m.
  • Wear your current school uniform or appropriate casual clothing (no jeans).
  • Lunch is provided (students who have food allergies may bring their own lunch).
  • Arrange to be picked up at 2:30 p.m.
