Open House
IHA hosts one Open House in mid-October, a smaller scale Open House later in the fall, and a Spring Open House. All events will offer you an opportunity to tour the building with our Eagle Ambassadors; learn about IHA's college prep curriculum; meet students, teachers, staff, and coaches; and witness first-hand the spirit in our community. Please click here to register for any of our Open Houses.

IHA on the Road
During the academic year, IHA can be found at various High School Information sessions that are sponsored by parishes, schools, and the Archdiocese of Newark. Members of the admissions team also make visits to local grammar schools during the academic day to speak to students about IHA and the high school admissions process.

STEM@theheart Info Sessions
Come and learn more about our new academic program for 8th-grade applicants who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and math disciplines. This is an accelerated selective program for students entering IHA. These information sessions will provide applicants and their families with details on the curriculum, admissions process, and scholarship opportunities. 

The 2017 Registration Day was February 4, 2017. Acceptance letters tell prospective students which session to attend.

ATTENTION: Please print out the Health Registration Forms to bring with you on Registration Day.


Rookie Camp for Incoming Freshmen
Rookie Camp is an optional three-day mini-orientation in June of each year for incoming freshmen designed to acclimate our new Blue Eagles to IHA's academic, social, and extracurricular experiences. Each day focuses on one of these three themes, addressing common concerns and questions of incoming freshmen. Rookie Camp is a great opportunity to meet new classmates and make some new friends before beginning at IHA in the fall!

Rookie Camp 2017 will be held June 20, 21, and 22 from 4-7 p.m.

* Please note as part of the program, we do serve snacks. If anyone has a food allergy, it is best she brings her own snack and notify us at the bottom of the registration form.
