The Academy of the Holy Angels is a private Roman Catholic high school for girls located in Demarest, New Jersey, United States. The school has an enrollment of 590 students. The Academy of the Holy Angels, the oldest private school in Bergen County, was founded in 1879 in Fort Lee by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, as a boarding and day school for girls in Kindergarten to twelfth Grade. The school was originally known as "Holy Angels' Collegiate Institute for Young Ladies and Preparatory School for Little Girls."

The Academy's campus relocated from Fort Lee to Demarest in 1965, and now serves young women in grades 9 through 12. The Academy's mission is "to enable young women to reach the fullness of their potential spiritually, intellectually and physically."cite web | title = Our History | publisher = Academy of the Holy Angels | date = 2008 | url = http://www.holyangels.org/s/152/holyangels.aspx?sid=152&gid=1&pgid=877 | accessdate = 2008-06-14]
