Dominican High School

At Dominican High School, we believe that students should provide an environment in which all students can excel spiritually, academically, and personally with a sense of responsibility and respect.
We teach our children that their bodies, minds and spirits are each a gift from God.
We respect our own bodies and those of others. We reject violence and degradation in all forms.
We value our selves and others as children of God.
We commit to the importance of prayer and study—foundations of the Dominican community for centuries.
We respond to the call to share our gifts from God.
