Dear Prospective Parents and Students,
- In Summer 2018, we will complete the Second and Final Phase of a building renovation. Last summer, we renovated the First and Fifth Floors. We unveiled our new and expanded student cafeteria, two additional full--size classrooms, and improved circulation in time for the start of school! These changes have drastically improved the quality of life for our students, faculty, and staff, and allow D.A. to serve our community even better. This Summer, we will refurbish the Second, Third, and Fourth Floors, improving existing classrooms, restoring a dedicated chapel space, and adding offices for faculty and staff.
- In Summer 2018, select rising seniors will embark on our second service trip to Zambia. Our students will reside at a Dominican High School in Zambia, where they will experience the life of a female student in Africa. Their time will also include assisting doctors and nurses in field work in surrounding villages.
- We have added many new courses for the 2018-2019 year. These include our 13th A.P. Course--A.P. Spanish--and other electives, such as History of the City of New York, Women in American History, History of Art in the United States, and Accelerated Latin.
