Principal's Welcome

Lynn BurekWelcome to the Academy of Saint Elizabeth!
The Academy is proud of its enduring legacy as the oldest, Catholic, independent, college preparatory high school for young women in the state of New Jersey, founded and sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth. We are mission-driven institution and even now, as we celebrate our 160th anniversary, we remain focused on the core values on which our school was founded: charity, community, justice, service, and educational excellence. 
We are thrilled to welcome our students back in-person this fall. Although we face some programming challenges due to the COVID-19 crisis, we fully expect 2020-21 to be an enriching and uplifting year as we work to best meet the needs of our young women academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. 
Please take the time you need to get to know us better. Browse our website, follow us on social media, and reach out to our administration and staff. Admissions will look very different in 2020-21 than it has in the past, so if you are beginning the high school selection process, please peruse our admissions pages. I especially encourage you to view our Virtual Open House. When the time is right, we hope to invite prospective members of the Class of 2025 in to meet with us and discuss your future as an AOSE Panther! 
I am confident you will be quite impressed with what we have to offer. The Academy is truly a warm, caring, and inclusive community where a young woman will discover who she was meant to be. 
May God richly bless you,

Lynn A. Burek
