Thank you for your interest in San Domenico!

It’s with great pleasure that I introduce you to San Domenico School, a distinctive K-12 day and boarding international learning community, celebrating 171 years of exceptional, college preparatory education. Founded in 1850 as the first independent school in California, we are proud of our heritage and distinguished tradition of educating students to become the change makers and innovators of tomorrow. Anchored by our founding values of study, reflection, community, and service, we equip students with a lifelong passion for learning and a deeply global perspective. 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, and in turn, a San Domenico education creates more than just great students, it develops great people equipped with empathy, motivation, and knowledge to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Located just 30 minutes from San Francisco, the SD experience is made even more exceptional by our unparalleled Bay Area location and stunning 515 acre campus - a backyard filled with endless options for team and club activities, exercise, and adventure. Our 550 K-12 day students and 130 high school boarding students come to us from down the street, out-of-state, and from 23 countries around the world. If you are interested in experiencing our campus, check out our virtual 360 tour as well as our campus tour from the perspective of one of our many talented students.
