Our Mission


The AHA Community

Academy of Holy Angels is a Catholic, coeducational, college preparatory high school community in Richfield, Minnesota, consisting of students, professional staff, parents, alumni and friends who are actively committed to a common goal: educating each student for life. Mindful that each of us is created in God's image, we respect each other, we serve those in need, we embrace each other's differences, and we are welcoming to those who wish to interact with our community. AHA nurtures students to become confident, prepared, connected in faith, and ready for college and life. 

The mission of Academy of Holy Angels is to educate and nurture a diverse student population so that each student, as a whole person, may achieve full potential to excel intellectually, to live spiritually, to lead responsibly, to act justly, and to serve selflessly.

As a Catholic college-preparatory high school, AHA focuses on the principles in its mission statement:

The AHA Way is a program that was developed in order to intentionally create a caring, welcoming, inclusive, and respectful school environment at Academy of Holy Angels (AHA).   The entire community uses the AHA Way guidelines in the way we communicate, in the way we interact with one another, in how we celebrate, and in how we approach problems.  The program consists of four tenets that are applied with a different set of expectations for parents, students and staff:
  • Help Others and Ourselves Succeed
  • Be Part of the Solution
  • Communicate "You Matter"
  • Honor the Absent
