How does your donation help?
The Annual Fund sustains the Academy’s core mission to provide a challenging independent school education, rooted in the Catholic Dominican tradition that empowers and nurtures students. 

Your generosity provides the resources to:
- sustain academic resources & programs
- preserve the Academy’s small class size
- stabilize tuition
- enhance technology
- provide financial aid to advance a diverse and talented student body
- underwrite operating expenses
- support professional development
- maintain buildings & grounds
- facilitate grants and match funds

The Academy’s small class size, nurturing safe environment, caring teachers, wonderful classmates, warm sense of community and strong values provide exceptional opportunities for students-of-all-ages. Our success is measured daily in the ability to engage young people as life-long learners and responsible citizens, helping students to become self-directed, competent and confident, and preparing them to assume leadership roles in school and throughout their lives.
Thank you for your support.
