If you weren't able to join us in person, click on the image above to watch our livestream. The program starts at the 16:00 mark!
If you’d like to support this initiative, you can still make your gift! Every gift -- no matter the amount -- makes a difference!

The Making a Difference Scholarship Benefit provides the opportunity for our donors and community partners to support our commitment to providing an exemplary Catholic education to young women from all socio-economic backgrounds. 

  • 2021-22 Tuition is $20,650.
  • NDA provides 33% of students with need-based tuition assistance ranging from $1,000 to $20,650; these students would have not been able to attend this year without the financial assistance.
  • NDA awarded over $1 million in financial support for the 2021-2022 academic year.
  • Since its inception in 2020, Making a Difference has provided almost $400,000 in tuition assistance.

Tuition assistance allows us to continue offering a seat to those who desire and deserve a challenging, nurturing, and safe educational experience regardless of ability to pay.  The Third Annual Making a Difference Scholarship Benefit is our first time celebrating together in person as we support tuition assistance.

We hope you will join us with fellow alumnae, past and current parents, and friends! 100% of all sponsorships, donations, and ticket sales directly assists girls in need of tuition assistance.

May we count on you to make a difference?
