As a parent, I love Holy Name. My two daughters love to learn, have made great friends, and have lots of fun at school - and my oldest is going to attend one of the top university programs next year. We couldn't be happier!

HNMCS provides a uniquely nurturing and challenging environment. In these times of tough academic competition we believe our daughter will not only follow the path she chooses but be ready to excel in a post secondary program. Her HNMCS years have been truly formative. HNMCS is a one of a kind school.

This is a Catholic school with the right focus on values. The reason this school is so special has a lot to do with that. It's warm, welcoming and doesn't compromise its beliefs.

Engaging, fun, compassionate and interesting teachers, along with administrators and office staff who ensure the school's values are at the core of all that goes on, sets HNMCS apart from the rest. Both our daughters feel privileged to be part of this wonderful environment.

It has been a pleasure to watch our daughter grow as an independent learner at HNMCS. She has accepted challenges that have been presented to her through her dedicated teachers and has shown great personal development from them.

The superb education that our daughter Victoria received with our faith at its core gave her an extended family and friendships to last a lifetime. Our daughter is a now a confident McMaster student who enjoyed an effortless transition from HNMCS

C. VandenHoek


One of the best things I see about HNMCS is that the girls "work hard" - but they also "play hard". For as much work as they are putting into all the assignments, tests, projects, etc...they are having a great deal of fun and I think it's a great balance!
