The Academy of St. Aloysius was a private high school for girls located in Jersey City, New Jersey, United States, operated by the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth. The school had an enrollment of 178 students and offered a College preparatory curriculum, an honors program and college credit courses. It closed in June 2006, as did the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Hoboken, New Jersey, another Sisters of Charity girls' high school. A new school, called Caritas Academy, also run by the Sisters of Charity, was open from September 2006 until June 2008 in the building previously occupied by St. Aloysius.

The school was a member of the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools.
