  • Saint Dominic High School offers a student-centered, Catholic education to young women and men on Long Island. The key to Saint Dominic`s perennial attractiveness and success is this: the administration, faculty and staff respond to each student in a personal and caring manner, treating her or him as an individual with unique needs, aspirations, and potential. Very simply, here "You are a name, not a number!"With an average class size of twenty-two and a student to faculty ratio of 13:1, Saint Dominic students excel in a curriculum designed to challenge the learning potential of each student.
