Holy Angels Academy, 12201 Old Henry Road, has been named to the Catholic High School Honor Roll’s Top 50 list for 2012-2013. The honor roll is sponsored by the Cardinal Newman Society and emphasizes Catholic identity, civic education and academics.
Holy Angels has received the distinction several times, most recently in 2008.
“We’re very proud to have achieved this,” said the school’s principal, Michael Monaghan. “We’re happy that we have been recognized on a national scale in a year when competition for this award was rather intense.”
He said that the application process was rewritten this year and questions delved more deeply into the school’s academic program.
Holy Angels educates children in grades kindergarten through 12th grade. Its enrollment stands at 85 overall, including 35 students in the high school.
A celebration will be held on Oct. 2, the feast of the Guardian Angels.
It will include a student gathering and academic competitions.
Holy Angels is the only Catholic high school in the archdiocese that has applied for the honor, according to Leisa Schulz, superintendant of Catholic schools for the Archdiocese of Louisville.
