Through education, the Church seeks to prepare her members to hear, live, and proclaim the good news of the Gospel. Here at St. Dominic High School, education includes all the deliberate, systematic and sustained efforts of the Church community, in both formal and informal education settings, to develop the skills, knowledge, and values needed for life. Catholic education sees all knowledge as sacred when human insight is combined with divine revelation in the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty.

It is the educator who is preeminent in creating the unique climate in which a Catholic philosophy of education can be realized. Called to a specific ministry in the Catholic Church, at St. Dominic educators are committed to professional excellence and spiritual growth in their Christian lives, witnessing to the tradition and vision they share. Respecting each learner as created and loved by God with special gifts and needs, they direct the learning process as guide and companion.
