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 168 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.

Our Admissions Team is eager to get to know your family and introduce you to San Domenico. As a first step, please complete our Online Inquiry Form and we will contact you regarding Parent Tours, Student Visits, Open Houses, and other exciting campus events which will allow you to experience academic excellence and the pursuit of meaning, purpose, and joy in action. In addition, you’ll experience our beautiful 515 acre campus and see for yourself how small classes, an international student body, and an extraordinarily dedicated faculty allow students to find their voice, follow their passions, and reach their full potential.

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.
