San Domenico School Admissions

Student Enjoying Being at School

Greetings Prospective Families,

It’s with great pleasure that I introduce you to San Domenico School, a distinctive Kindergarten-Grade 12 learning community celebrating 169 years of innovation and exceptional education. Founded in 1850 as the first independent school in California, we are proud of our heritage and distinguished tradition of educating students to be the change makers and innovators of tomorrow. Anchored by our founding values of study, reflection, community, and service, a San Domenico education prepares students with cutting edge academics and a lifelong passion for learning. Every day, we ask our students not just to study, but to reflect on their learning, celebrate in community, and find their purpose. Our faculty and staff encourage students to discover meaning, purpose, and joy as part of every endeavor, because when our children uncover their own purpose, they recognize that the most powerful motivation possible can come from within. In turn, a San Domenico education creates more than just great students, it develops great people who are equipped with empathy, motivation, and the knowledge it takes to become the global leaders of tomorrow.

As the first step to admission, please create a Student Profile on Ravenna Hub. Once your profile is created, locate 'San Domenico School' in the School Directory. You will have the option to either “Explore” or “Apply” to register for Parent Tours, Student Visits, Admissions Preview Days, and other exciting campus events. While not always possible, before you apply, we would love for you to visit campus so that you may see for yourself what makes our educational experience exceptional.  Both your application for admission and your registration for a campus visit can be processed through your Ravenna profile.

Whether you live locally or internationally, our Admissions Team is here to support your family throughout the admissions process. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call our admissions office at (415) 258-1905.
