Mission Statement

Open Garden DayDedicated to being California’s leading independent school, serving Kindergarten through twelfth grade students of all faiths, San Domenico is committed to excellence in education, preparing the next generation of global leaders.

Founded in 1850 by the Dominican Sisters, San Domenico reflects our Dominican Catholic heritage which calls us to uphold the values of study, reflection, service, and community.

In the Dominican tradition of Veritas (truth),

We inspire inquiry and provide a strong academic 
          foundation for lifelong intellectual growth.

We explore and develop the unique gifts of each 
          individual in mind, heart, body, and spirit.

We celebrate diversity, recognizing God's presence 
          in ourselves and in all of creation.

We recognize what it means to be human in a global 
          community and respond with integrity to the needs 
          and challenges of our time.


San Domenico's Vision

At San Domenico an exceptional education requires not just academic excellence but also meaning and purpose. We provide a character-driven Kindergarten through Grade 12 Independent School education, leading the way in redefining the metrics of achievement and graduating inspired students equipped to create a better world.

Dominican Education

Our diverse community includes many faiths and traditions, united in our Dominican educational philosophy - to inspire our students to develop character and integrity and to apply their academic knowledge to the challenges of the times in order to create a better world.

This philosophy is reflected in the daily life of our community.  San Domenico faculty teach in a spirit of open inquiry and critical thinking. Our students tend to our garden, learn interconnectedness through our ecological literacy program, and reflect on their place within the sacred community of nature. They study ethics and create service learning projects to spread social justice, peace, and equality for all people.  In every activity they cooperate and collaborate to create a community of respect and belonging.
