Welcome from the President

Welcome Prospective Parents,

I am delighted to extend a heartfelt welcome as you embark on your journey through the Academy of the Holy Names' website. As the President of AHN, it is an honor to lead an institution that has made a distinct and positive impact on the youth of Tampa for over 140 years. Rooted in our Catholic identity and inspired by the core values of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, AHN provides an extraordinary educational experience that shapes the minds and touches the hearts of our students.

At the Academy of the Holy Names, we are committed to empowering students to discover their unique potential and make a positive impact in the world. Our motto, "Esse Quam Videri"—To Be, Rather Than To Seem—embodies the essence of our educational philosophy. We believe in fostering authenticity as we encourage our students to be genuine in their actions, thoughts, and relationships.

As you navigate through our website, you will get a preview of a vibrant faith community driven by a passion for academic excellence, spiritual growth, and developing empathetic and compassionate servant leaders. Within our three distinct divisions, our dedicated faculty and staff have carefully designed their respective learning environments to both nurture and challenge our students at the different stages of their development. 

Thank you for considering the Academy as a partner in your child's educational journey. We look forward to welcoming you to our Academy Family.

Yours in faith and education,

Kevin P. Whitney
President, Academy of the Holy Names
