Upper School Day and Boarding
Ninth - Twelfth Grade
We are honored to introduce you to our distinctive day and boarding high school, where academic excellence requires not just knowledge, but also meaning. Here, education doesn’t stop at the simple acquisition of facts and figures. In pursuit of excellence and in support of academic curiosity, we encourage students to consider how diverse academic subjects offer distinct perspectives. Our measure of academic success goes beyond grades and test scores to include meaning and purpose. As you'll discover when you VISIT and APPLY to SD, we are redefining the metrics of achievement, students take ownership of their learning, develop a sense of agency, and are inspired to their full intellectual potential, ensuring that they thrive in our accelerated college preparatory environment.
SD Upper School students love the process of learning as much as the result it yields. They find a joyful balance between rigorous academics and celebrating community through athletics, the arts, and music. Our students are fully immersed in San Domenico’s innovative curriculum, informed by the SD values of study, reflection, community and service.
Our admissions team works diligently to ensure that families are informed and supported throughout the application process, from inquiry to enrollment.
