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 be in person this academic school year. Although we faced some programming challenges due to the COVID-19 crisis, 2020-21 has been 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. We look forward to welcoming the Class of 2025 to the Panther Family! 
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
