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.

Class of 2028 English Placement Test and Parent Information Session
Members of the Class of 2028 will fill out enrollment paperwork, purchase uniforms, and take the English Placement Examination on February 10, 2024

Rookie Camp for Incoming Freshmen
Rookie Camp is an optional two-day mini-orientation offered each year for incoming freshmen designed to acclimate our new Blue Eagles to IHA's academic, social, and extracurricular experiences. We will focus on these themes while 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!
