BENEFITING: DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
ORGANIZER: DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
My name is Flannery and I am a senior at Dominican Academy, a Catholic all-girls school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. My experience at DA has been absolutely amazing and has been filled with incredible opportunities. Through DA, I have had access to both awesome teachers, who not only focus on teaching but who reach out to the students and make sure that all is well with them and their classes, and a campus that knows no bounds given our Manhattan location. One of my favorite memories from from freshman year was seeing, for the first time, all of the graduating seniors in their beautiful white graduation dresses, walking down the aisle at St. Catherine of Sienna Church. I can't believe I'm only 5 months away from the same moment! DA has helped me grow in so many ways, because of my friends, teachers, and experiences, and so I have to say one of the best decisions I've ever made was deciding to go there.
So, now, I am asking for your help! Every year, DA has a special fundraiser where each student supplies the school with $300. This year, we decided to change it up and go with an online fundraiser, kind of like a GoFundMe page, for each student. It would mean the world to me if you would donate money to my beautiful school, therefore helping us keep all of the awesome activities that we do. Please, if you get a chance, donate through this page to Dominican Academy, and help me reach my goal!
Thank you so much for reading and for helping out DA. It is a truly amazing place and I could not have been happier at any other school. I can only hope that future students have the same experience.
PS: Here are some quick facts about DA Students-
- Our girls will be learning studio art in front of works by the Great Masters. Starting in January 2016, D.A. will partner with The Frick Museum to offer sketching classes taught by art professionals
- D.A. has been ranked the number six best all girls, Catholic school in New York according to Niche rankings. In addition, we are ranked among the top 100 catholic schools in the country and have five national National Merit Scholars including a National Merit Semi Finalist who placed in the top 1% of students nationwide.
- We now offer more advanced placement courses than any other Catholic high school in New York. This year in addition to three new electives including Civil Rights in America, Law and Society, and Introduction to Computer Programming, we now offer Advanced Placement Environmental Science.
- New York City is our classroom. This fall students traveled to the American Museum of Natural History, the Museum of the City of New York, The Paley Center for Media and the Museum of Modern Art for immersion learning trips. Thank you for your continued support of Dominican Academy. We rely on your gift to ensure that the smart girls of today become the intelligent women of tomorrow.
