At the Academy, we are proud of our praiseworthy history and alumni who have played a vital role in that history…and play an even more vital role in our future! The pages of this website illustrate many of the varied activities sponsored by the Holy Names Alumni Association (HNAA) to serve our alumni. We extend a warm invitation to all alumni to join fellow classmates at any of the gatherings held to promote beneficial relationships—and fun—for our alumni. You can choose to be involved in one or all of the events, nominate an alumnus for the Athletic Hall of Fame or Alumnus of the Year, update us on your career or family or join the HNAA Board of Directors. There are many ways to connect with fellow alumni and benefit from your Holy Names alumni status—please take the opportunity to become involved.

I look forward to connecting, reconnecting or just saying “hi” to our alumni. I know we all share the love of the Sisters of the Holy Names, our alma mater and our classmates. Please feel free to contact the Alumni Office for any reason…we are here to serve you. And, once again, welcome home!

Lovingly in the Holy Names,

Patty P. Bohannan (A’77)



You will find it on the Bayshore, The school that we love best, With its ivory walls so stately And the cross, its beacon crest. Oh, we love the soil that bears her And the trees that 'round her grow, More glorious sight you'll ne'er behold No matter where you go!


We are proud to boast her teachings, Her glory and success; We will always stand behind her, 'Tis the road to happiness. We will honor and defend her As down the years we roam, So stand and cheer Academy, Our Alma Mater home!
