Area Private School Information

Academy of Saint Elizabeth
Convent Station, NJ07961973.290.5225

Established in 1860, the Academy of Saint Elizabeth is the oldest high school for girls in the state of New Jersey, a designation that affirms the highest levels of tradition, excellence, and vitality. Our rich history is the result of the vision and determination of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, the religious order founded by the first American saint, Elizabeth Ann Seton, and the legacy of the Academy’s foundress, Mother Mary Xavier Mehegan, who was in the forefront of the commitment to educate women so they could participate more fully in modern times. Saint Elizabeth’s as she is today, however, is an institution that has advanced to levels even Mother Xavier could not have imagined. 

The Academy of Saint Elizabeth is an independent college preparatory school for young women rooted in the traditions of excellence fostered by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth. Our goal is to inspire each of our young women to acquire a strong sense of self, a purpose, and a vision; to develop her talents and leadership skills and to imbue in her a code of moral responsibility that will be her compass for life’s journey.

We recognize the role of metaphor, ritual, and tradition in children's lives and the power of the arts in the learning process.

It is our desire to touch the lives of children so they may live life wisely and with great joy.

Real Estate Tips
Disclosure Laws >Defects Must Be Revealed

Disclosure laws make it important to reveal all material defects when you are selling a home. It is important to be absolutely candid with your agent and all buyers about the condition of the property. If there is anything wrong with the roof, the plumbing, the wiring or structure, it will probably not remain a "sleeping dog". The problem will probably wake up, snarl, growl and snap at your ankles at the precise moment your buyers feel their first stirring of buyers' remorse.

It is unlikely that defects will go undetected, because most buyers get a home inspection before they are contractually obliged to complete the purchase. Even if the problems do not surface before the closing, your liability does not end after the closing for any defects you may have forgotten to report. Buyers almost never accept misrepresentation graciously, but they can usually deal with a house that is short of perfection if they know what they are getting into from the beginning. When selling your home, your real estate agent will provide you with a seller's disclosure form. Protect yourself by clearly describing any material defects prior to the sale.
