Nardin Academy is honored to announce that it is a recipient of an education and equity grant from the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation. Based in New York City, the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the health and well-being of New Yorkers.
With spring in full swing, Nardin students across the Academy are showing their commitment to service this season of giving. A pillar of the Nardin Experience, service reflects the tradition of our founders, the Daughters of the Heart of Mary, and is lived out by our students through retreats, service projects, initiatives, and much more.
True to the tradition of our founders, the Daughters of the Heart of Mary, Nardin Academy promotes the values of fostering connections and embracing all. In living these values, Nardin seeks to provide a warm and welcoming environment for all members of the Nardin community, students, families, faculty, staff, and alumni alike. In this effort, the Board of Trustees prioritized diversity, inclusion, and opportunity (DIO) in its strategic plan, and, as part of a student and administration collaborative effort, adopted a new diversity statement.
