  • 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. While offering a NYS Board of Regents Curriculum, students are able to go beyond state standards by taking college level, advanced placement, and honors courses, as well as our newly designed STEM program. One-hundred percent of the Class of 2017 was accepted to some of the world`s finest colleges and universities and secured over $23 million in academic, athletic and merit-based scholarships. Saint Dominic campus features a Science and Communications Center, which consists of five state-of-the-art labs. We have built and maintained research partnerships with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and The Oyster Bay Waterfront Center. In addition, we have created a state-of-the-art World Language Lab for the Spanish and Italian curricula. The lab utilizes technology so students can learn interactively by speaking with and listening to native speakers and teachers can exposes students to college-level curriculum.We are excited for the launch of our 1:1 Chromebook initiative. The availability of one-to-one learning in our classrooms on a daily basis will offer many new learning opportunities to our students.Saint Dominic offers diverse programs in fine arts and athletics, allowing students to participate at a level consistent with their interests and abilities. The Charles B. Wang Saint Dominic Playing Fields, just 2.4 miles away from our main campus, is comprised of two baseball, two softball, two lacrosse/soccer fields, four tennis courts, and a retreat house, making it one of the finest comprehensive facilities on Long Island.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.
