Notre Dame welcomed our Freshman Class of 2023 and new students on Tuesday, August 27. All students reported to school on Wednesday, August 28. We also welcomed our new President Ken Jennings.
Mr. Jennings is pictured here with members of the Class of 2023 and our first Academic Merit Scholarship Recipients. Our Academic Merit Scholarships are offered annually to incoming freshmen. Recipients are selected based on their performance on the High School Placement Exam (HPST) or the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT), written essays and interviews conducted with school administration.
The recipient of the Fitzpatrick Family Merit Scholarship offering full tuition, is Sasha Salins '23. Sasha attended Saint Augustine of Canterbury School in Kendall Park, NJ. Her extracurricular activities include community service and volunteer work. Sasha is also involved in the theatre and performing arts.
The Mary Ann Liptak Merit Scholarships award half tuition to the recipients. The two winners of these scholarships are Lucia Samuel '23 and Aidan McGovern '23.
Lucia Samuel is from Lawrenceville and attended St. Paul’s in Princeton along with her 5 siblings. Lucia plays piano and sings in school plays and at church Masses. She also enjoys a number of athletic activities including soccer and roller skating.
Aidan attended Millstone Township Middle School. Outside of school, he is involved in theatre and visual arts. He also plays both basketball and baseball.
Notre Dame congratulates all three recipients and can't wait to see where Notre Dame will lead them!
