The Academy celebrated its 162nd birthday on February 3rd, 2022, continuing its legacy as New Jersey’s oldest all-girls Catholic high school.

Spirits were high in Dr. Borin’s homeroom at lunchtime as the “Borin’s Baddies” won the second annual school-wide Faculty Trivia Kahoot. Students learned a few fun facts about their teachers: for instance, Ms. Vukas is a fraternal twin and Mr. Watt skipped his prom to attend a radio convention! Volunteers from the ever-diligent Parent’s Association delivered pizza and cupcakes to each homeroom on golden platters as upperclassmen presented gifts to their little SEAsters.

Sophomore Isabella Misrahi commented: “[The birthday party] was a great way to bring the entire Academy together. I mean, who doesn’t love a little friendly competition and sweets to help teach about the school?”

The festivities coincided with Catholic Schools Week, a “celebration of Catholic education in the United States” according to the National Catholic Educational Association, that began in 1974.
