Registration is now open for D.A.'s Summer 2016 Programs:

Summer Connection: Our creative program for rising 7th, 8th and 9th grade girls unites visits to New York City cultural and historic landmarks with in-class instruction by D.A. faculty. Past visits have included the Morgan Library, Museum of the City of New York, SONY Wonderlab, the High Line, and more. It's a great opportunity to become more familiar with D.A., to meet girls from all over NYC, and to get comfortable with traveling into the city. The program runs daily from 8:30 AM to 3 PM. The cost is $650 for one week or $1,200 for both weeks. DATES TBD.

T.A.C.H.S. Prep Class: Get ready to ace the T.A.C.H.S. exam by reviewing material, developing test-taking techniques, and honing study skills, all while making new friends. The class, taught by an outside test-prep specialist, runs from 9 AM to 12 PM from August 1-5 and August 8-12. This program is open to both boys and girls. Students are welcome to attend one or both weeks. The cost is $250 for one week, and $400 for both. Click here for the registration form.

Introducing Studio Art at The Frick

Starting this month, D.A. students will have the opportunity to learn alongside the Great Masters at the Frick Collection. The Frick, located a mere two blocks from D.A., is one of the pre-eminent art museums in the United States and houses paintings by world-renowned artists including El Greco, Rembrandt, van Dyck, and Vermeer. Interested students will attend programming on-site at the museum, at no extra charge.

Inaugural Service Trip to Zambia

In Summer 2016, select rising seniors will travel to Zambia to visit the top girls school in the country, Our Lady of Fatima, operated by the Dominican Sisters. Students will not only get to see what life is like as a female student in Africa, but will also spend time assisting doctors and nurses with field work in the surrounding areas. This is an invaluable opportunity for our students to engage in service and solidarity with Dominican students half a world away.
