NFA's own Eva McGrath '11, currently a senior at Mount St. Joseph Academy, was in the company of Malala Yousafzai during her visit to Philadelphia. Malala is the recipient of the 2014 Liberty Medal for her extraordinary courage and “voice” for education for girls and gender equality. What an amazing experience and an honor for Eva to meet this remarkable young woman.

Recently NFA received notice from the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth that 55 of its 7th and 8th graders (62%) have qualified as Johns Hopkins Scholars, a notable distinction. A Johns Hopkins Scholar is a student who has attained a particular score on a standardized test. These students scored in the 93rd percentile or higher in nationally standardized measurements of reading, language, mathematics, science and social studies and achieved an A average in their sixth grade year. Congratulations to our excellent young scholars! #blueribbonschool
