Academy of Saint Elizabeth

PO Box 297, Convent Station, NJ 07961

In 1859, Mother Mary Xavier, a young Sister of Charity from New York, was commissioned by Bishop James Roosevelt Bayley to establish this school for young women; it is the oldest girls' high school in the state. The academy offers Advanced Placement programs in calculus, chemistry, English, US history and foreign languages, and honors classes in each major academic discipline. The academy fields a full complement of varsity teams, and intramural programs are offered in riding and skiing. Students also plan and participate in liturgical celebrations, lead the school in daily prayer and volunteer for service projects. Annual retreats are conducted off campus for each class. The school's foreign travel program sponsors a two-week trip each year.
