We start with exceptional academics
Academic excellence is at the heart of a San Domenico education. Here, education doesn’t stop at simple acquisition of facts and figures. In pursuit of excellence and in support of academic curiosity, we encourage students to consider how diverse academic subjects offer distinct perspectives. It’s in this exploration and in this questioning that we find purpose and meaning.
We seek to inspire and equip students for excellence in life—not just at school. Our measure of academic success goes beyond grades and test scores. When students themselves lead their own learning—when their curiosity and passions take over and they claim ownership of the person they are to become—we know we have achieved our goal.
Confident in their abilities and undeterred by challenge, our graduates boldly cultivate an intellectual life. By practicing habits of study, debate, and questioning, our students can better consider and respond to the diverse challenges of their time.
