TMLA's 2024 Aspire Scholars

We are proud to announce TMLA’s 2024 Aspire Scholars! Cathleen Balid, Mary Balid, Kelly Santiago and Ava Zino will be continuing their educations at Princeton University, Vanderbilt University and Villanova University. TMLA’s Aspire Scholars program, unmatched anywhere in the United States, is designed to help bridge the gap between the total financial package awarded at the collegiate level and the actual cost of matriculation. In this way, TMLA’s Aspire Scholars program aims to make attendance at some of the world’s most prestigious institutions a reality for Mary Louis students. 

Cathleen, Mary, Kelly and Ava join 9 of their TMLA “older sisters” as Aspire Scholars. In the group picture: Ava Zino ‘24, Kelly Santiago ‘24, Adrionna Daguillard ‘23, Angelina Gargano ‘22, Veronica Arty ‘23, Morgan McCroy ‘22, Olivia Zino ‘22, Mary Balid ‘24, Elise Wollemborg ‘22, Stephanie Starzynski ‘22, Gabriella Gordon '23, and Cathleen Balid ‘24 with TMLA’s President Livia Angiolillo, Principal Ann O’Hagan-Cordes '84, and Assistant Principal Jean Mauro.

TMLA’s Aspire Scholars Endowment is currently funding over three-quarters of a million dollars of the undergraduate expenses for 13 young women attending Barnard College, Georgetown University, Howard University, Princeton University, University of Notre Dame, University of Virginia, Vanderbilt University and Villanova University. 

In addition, 80% of TMLA’s Class of 2024 have been awarded at least one academic scholarship to the college or university of their choice through TMLA’s extraordinary college prep Aspire Program. The Mary Louis Academy Aspire Program is made possible through the unparalleled generosity of our alumnae.
