Visit Us!

Come visit the Academy and learn why we are like no other school in Tampa Bay. The Academy empowers students to be authentic individuals who engage in independent thought, are inspired by creativity, and lead culturally aware, spiritually rich lives. Our innovative approach to curriculum integrates technology, encourages artistic expression, and actively engages students in exploration and inquiry. While academically rigorous, the school respects that the goal of education is to nurture children to become curious learners for life.

The Academy offers unparalleled learning environments that are conducive to 21st century education. Equipped with top-of-the-line technology and flexible furnishings, Academy students love working in the school's newly redesigned middle and high schools. These spaces promote collaboration and creativity while exposing students to an atmosphere that is comparable to top universities and workplaces.

For many years now, Academy graduates have gone on to schools--and ultimately lives--formed by the education they received at the school. As a Catholic learning community, the Academy is committed to preparing students for the future by providing programs and activities that advance academic excellence and service to others; foster spiritual, personal and physical growth; promote inclusion of all community members; and embody the core values of a Holy Names education. The Academy welcomes families of all faiths and backgrounds.

Open Houses

Parents and students will attend curriculum information sessions,  participate in hands-on classroom activities, hear about our vast student life options, and tour our 19-acre campus. Families take away a full sense of the scope and strength of our programs.

High School Shadow Day

Spending a day at the Academy is the best way to see the daily workings of our unique all-girl environment. Visiting students spend the day with a student host, attending classes and all other school-day activities. AHN student-hosts vary in grade level and interests.

Visitors will meet students and teachers and see firsthand what the Academy is all about. A visit to AHN does not imply admission to the school. Campus visits are scheduled from September through April. Dates are subject to space availability and school events.


How do I set up a Shadow Day for my daughter?

In order to shadow, a student must first submit the application, application fee and student questionnaire. A shadow request calendar is located within the Admissions Portal. Confirm the date with the student's school and current teachers.

What time should I drop off and pick up my daughter?

Shadows should arrive at the Academy at 7:45 a.m. A host will greet her in the main lobby at the Bayshore entrance. Pick-up will be in the same location at 1:35 p.m.

Wednesdays are late-start days. We ask that shadows arrive at 8:30 a.m. The day concludes at 1:55 p.m.

Should my daughter pack a lunch?

Lunch is provided by the Academy. Shadows will have their choice of food from our cafeteria provider, SAGE Dining.

What should my daughter wear?

We ask that students dress comfortably for a day at school. Our classrooms may be chilly so we encourage guests to bring a sweater or sweatshirt. No shorts or ripped jeans, please.

Middle School Shadow Day

After acceptances are communicated in the spring, applicants to grades 5-8 are invited to spend a day at AHN shadowing one of our current students.
