Students are dismissed at 2:20 p.m.

We often say that campus is livelier after the last bell. NDA students take part in a wide variety of activities, including more than 30 co-curricular clubs and programs, 42 athletic teams, and a variety of offerings in drama, music, and art. You can find a full list of activities on our website under “Student Life.”
Most families choose to carpool to NDA, as they find it is the most flexible and economical means of transportation. Each spring, the Admissions Office works with incoming and current families to coordinate carpools for the following school year. A private bus is available, for a fee, for students from the Milton/Quincy area. Hingham residents are able to take advantage of Hingham Public Schools buses. Learn more here!
