School Reviews

Graduated in 1999. College was a breeze because NDA gave me such a great education. I also got an athletic scholarship to play college soccer. We didn''t have a middle school then and we still had nuns and the convent so it strict in a good way. Don''t know how it is now but they believe in the betterment of the student in every aspect of their life.
