Welcome to SD

Kate Reeser, Director of Upper SchoolHello Students, Parents, and Guardians,

I am pleased to share more about San Domenico, where you will experience not only exceptional, college preparatory academics, but also, a sense of purpose. Our students work with an outstanding faculty who are committed to providing student-centered, meaningful learning experiences. We encourage big questions, inquiry, healthy debate, and thought-provoking conversations, all within an academically challenging program.

At SD, our program includes opportunity for athletic, creative, spiritual, and academic endeavor with championship-winning sports teams, world-renowned arts, Advanced Placement, Honors, and college preparatory classes. With a 94% pass rate on Advanced Placement courses and 80% of our graduates matriculating to a top 50 U.S. college or university, San Domenico is a go-to independent school for the Bay Area and international families. Our curriculum simultaneously emphasizes reflection, wellness, resilience, and continuous growth so that we can better inspire and equip students for excellence in school and in life.

In keeping with our core values of study, reflection, community and service, we encourage students to examine the interconnectedness between academic subjects and systems of knowledge to guide them in imagining and building more purposeful lives and a better world.

A San Domenico education is a liberating experience as it opens doorways to new worlds, new perspectives, and endless possibilities. Our graduates live fuller, more purposeful, and meaningful lives. I look forward to meeting you soon!
