Education On Purpose
Every day at San Domenico, exceptional academics and our Dominican values cultivate lives grounded in a sense of purpose. Our community dedicates itself to discovering and celebrating meaning, purpose, and joy as part of every endeavor. And when our children uncover their purpose, they recognize that the most powerful motivation possible can come from within. Grounded in our core values of study, reflection, community, service, at SD we believe that what students do with their education is as important as their academic performance. Every day we encourage our students to not just study, but also to reflect on their learning, find their purpose, and celebrate in community, because an exceptional education, where values and academics join together, creates more than just great students—it develops great people.
Our 500-acre solar powered campus provides a living laboratory for hands-on learning and fosters a deep understanding of eco-literacy and sustainability. Small classes, an international student body, and an extraordinarily dedicated faculty allow students to find their voice, follow their passions, and reach their full potential as life long learners and global citizens. Deeply committed to helping students develop their unique gifts and talents, our programs offer on campus:
