Holy Name High School for Girls was affiliated with Holy Name Parish Church in what is known as both Windsor Terrace and Prospect Park. The high school was founded by Monsignor Charles Vitta in 1925 and offered a commercial course of study. In 1928, Diocesan officials asked Monsignor Vitta to close Holy Name High School and instructed the girls to enroll at the newly opened Bishop McDonnell Memorial High School.
