Textbooks and Transportation


Students are issued textbooks at the start of school in September. Textbooks are on loan from the State of New Jersey and must be returned in June.
Placement tests are taken in May. These tests will determine freshman year courses and her course selection will be mailed home. IHA's online store is designed to coincide with the Course Name and Course Number. Simply purchase books for each course listed that the student has selected. If classes are not listed on this site, it is because there are no supplemental books that need to be purchased. Please note, all religion books must be purchased by students.
