Each year we rely on our students, parents, alumnae and friends to provide financial support and help us provide the best possible education to our girls.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
I, Maria Talbott, am truly thankful for the education and opportunities that Dominican Academy has offered me. Throughout my years as this school, I'm more than glad to call this school my second home. And because of this, I want to do the best for this school and that's why I want to raise money to achieve our fundraising goal. As a senior this year, I have to prepare to say goodbye to Dominican Academy so I want to give back something and this fundraiser is the best way.
