What we do
“At San Domenico, teachers praise individuality. You’re encouraged to find out what you’re really good at and discover your passions.”
— Hannah Puckett, alum
“There’s so much trust in students here. They know we can get the job done.” — Maddie Murphy, student
Many schools talk about community, but at San Domenico community is a key tenet of our Dominican heritage. St. Dominic attracted his first followers precisely because they wanted to study, work, learn, and celebrate in community. Through study, discussion, and example, Dominicans confidently and fluidly crossed intellectual, spiritual, and cultural borders.
From an athletics team meeting to regroup after a tough loss to our youngest students gathering each morning to share their hopes for the school day, we understand that opening ourselves to others is a skill that must be constantly practiced and refined. Healthy debate, thought-provoking conversations, and lively exchanges among students, coaches, and teachers spur our community to greater success and growth. Whether we talk things out and come to consensus or reason together yet still disagree, we are always acting in a true spirit of community, as true Dominicans.
