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.

Registration Day for the Class of 2024 is February 8, 2020
. 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!
