Immaculate Heart Academy (IHA) offers more than a quality Catholic education for young women. IHA is a lifetime sisterhood to the 750 high school students who support and encourage one another with respect and kinship. Founded in 1960, IHA is the first college preparatory regional high school in the Archdiocese of Newark. The faculty and staff focus on developing the extraordinary talents of the young woman—academically, spiritually, socially and through extracurricular activities—preparing for a lifetime of positive contributions for themselves and our society. In addition to strong athletics and arts programs, the school has pushed hard to develop a STEM curriculum, including programs in Robotics and Applied Engineering, to meet the demands of the 21st century and beyond. The U.S. Department of Education has named IHA a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
