Immaculate Heart Academy is a regional, college preparatory high school in the Archdiocese of Newark, which has as its purpose the complete education of young women. Founded in 1960, IHA has remained true to its founding mission of providing quality Catholic education to our female students in an atmosphere characterized by respect for the individual, Christian community and a high level of family involvement. Those ideas and goals have remained strong and prevalent over the past 54 years, and will for many years to come. A strong theme throughout the school, both in the curriculum and extra-curricular activities, is the development of the special gifts that women can bring to society. The interests and needs of women in the areas of academics, spirituality, the arts, athletics and social interaction drive the programs at IHA. Most prominently, the emotional and psychological development of our students is fostered by the positive, supportive and affirming attitudes of the administration, faculty and staff here at The Heart. By both cultivating the traditional Christian values of the Roman Catholic Church and by upholding exceptional academic standards, IHA offers a unique educational experience for the young women in our community. IHA’s faculty and staff strive to develop every aspect of the individual by educating the mind and nurturing the spirit. By instilling in its students a sense of responsibility, confidence, justice, peace and compassion, IHA prepares a student for her life now, her challenges in the near future and her place in this ever-changing global society. At IHA, morale is very high as student enrollment has been steadily increasing, SAT scores have risen, and state-of-the-art technology changes and room renovations have been made. IHA now enjoys a reputation as an academic, athletic and artistic powerhouse with one very outstanding characteristic: the friendly, family atmosphere of the school is its trademark, and one of the main reasons why students choose to attend. At IHA, we are more than a school; we are a family. Do You Belong @theheart?
