THE STORY:

My name is Teresa and I am only a freshman at Dominican Academy, but I can honestly say that I love and appreciate this school so much already. I constantly switched schools when I was younger because they didn't make enough money to keep the school running or I graduated from the school. D.A. is the sixth school I've attended in my entire academic career, but it is so much more than that. Dominican Academy provides a form of education that you don't see anywhere else and fosters girls to use their abilities to change the world for the better. Being a student at D.A. has empowered me as a female and provided so many opportunities for myself and other students. This fundraiser has been set up, so that every student at D.A. can continue to be provided with these amazing opportunities regardless of their financial status. Our goal is to raise enough money, so the tuition does not increase, there by prohibiting girls from receiving an amazing education because of their financial background and not their academic capability.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela

Are you still not convinced to donate? Well, here are some exceptional facts about Dominican Academy:

DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK wrote -

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.
