St. Dominic High School is now in its eighth decade of offering a value-centered, Catholic education to young women and men on Long Island.
In fact, St. Dominic is honored to hold the distinction of being the oldest high school in the Diocese of Rockville Centre.
St. Dominic is and always has been a parish high school parishioners proudly refer to their high school as "The Parish Gem" yet from its earliest days it also has attracted students from communities outside the local area.
That it has consistently been able to do so is no accident; the hope and intent of the founding pastor, Monsignor Charles J.
Canivan, was to make St. Dominic Parish "an educational center that included a high school of outstanding merit." The mission of St. Dominic High School is to educate young people in a community dedicated to Gospel values and Catholic teachings.
Ministering to students of diverse abilities, St. Dominic High School strives to achieve wholeness through personal holiness, academic excellence, and social responsibility.
The pride of this community is its celebration of a student's growth and individuality.
