Application Process

Through the application process, we collect information that is age appropriate and that will serve as an indication of the student's potential for success at NDA. All applications, supporting materials and visits must be completed in order to receive an admissions decision.

Online Application
To begin, please submit the online application. This is the first document required to begin the application process. It can be submitted before the other required documentation. Once the online application has been received, you will be contacted regarding a visiting day and interview for you and your child.

Visiting Day
All students interested in enrolling for the 2017-2018 school year are required to participate in a Shadowing Day. More information regarding “Spend a Day at NDA” can be found here.

Parent Interview
The parent interview will follow the visit.

In addition to the application, parents are asked to submit the following documentation:

• A copy of your daughter’s birth certificate, immunization record and (if applicable) baptismal certificate.
• For girls in Grades 1 through 8, please submit a copy of the student’s latest report card and most recent standardized test scores.

Parent Handbook
