As stated in our philosophy, "through academic, spiritual, athletic, extracurricular, and service programs, St. Dominic provides the opportunity for students to discover, develop, and use their God-given talents". Many extra-curricular activities are available at SDHS to help meet this goal outside of the formal classroom environment. We encourage our students to become involved in activities of their interest. These activities build character, confidence and promote mental, physical and moral development. Students from diverse backgrounds are offered a means to learn positive life skills needed to be valuable members in society. Participation promotes teamwork, dedication, commitment, self-discipline, unity and school pride.

In addition to our Athletic programs St. Dominic High School offers a vast assortment of co-curricular activities.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY: The purpose of the National Honor Society (NHS) is to give recognition to outstanding students. Membership is open in the fall of each school year to qualified juniors and seniors. The following qualifications for membership are carefully considered and evaluated by the Faculty Council:

  • Each candidate must have completed one full academic year at St. Dominic and have a cumulative GPA of 3.7 unweighted, effective with the Class of 2017. (3.5 G.P.A. for class of 2016).
  • Students who transfer into St. Dominic and were members of the National Honor Society at their previous school will have their membership honored.
  • Each candidate must display involvement in the activities which reflect a high level of commitment to scholarship, leadership, character, and service above and beyond the normal requirements of the school. This commitment is catalogued on a personal profile application.
  • Each candidate’s behavior and integrity will be reviewed per semester.

At the start of each school year, Junior and Senior students who have met the cumulative GPA requirement will receive an invitation (via mail) to apply for admittance to the St. Dominic Chapter of the National Honor Society. Once the official invitation is received, students must download the application packet. The application deadline will be posted.

Membership decisions are determined by a five-member Faculty Council based on a thorough review of all three application documents. It is important to note that this is a selective process and cumulative GPA alone does not guarantee membership. Once students have been extended and accepted membership, it is expected they will maintain an cumulative unweighted GPA of at least 3.7 as well as complete seven hours of approved school-sponsored service during each year of membership.

The NHS Faculty Council consists of five teachers, chosen by the principal. The Faculty Council read each individual complete application. The Faculty Council votes on each applicant; those applicants with a majority vote are accepted. The faculty advisor has no input into the selection process and cannot override the Faculty Council. Applicants who are not accepted may appeal to the Principal, whose only responsibility will be to make sure the selection process was not conducted in an arbitrary or capricious manner and that the student’s materials were reviewed and voted upon.

OUTREACH:  Members organize and participate in service projects to benefit the local and greater community.  Students also sponsor the weekly mission collections for organizations that help those in need.  The club is open to all students who are interested in helping others. 

PEER MINISTERS:  Peer Ministers are role models, mentors and faith challengers for fellow students of St. Dominic High School.  By focusing on deepening their faith they foster growth in students and invite them to a deeper and more intimate relationship with God.  By their witness and through discipleship they encourage teens to full active participation in the sacraments, offered at both SDHS and at their local parish.   Requirements:

  • Juniors are eligible to apply during 2nd semester
  • Applicants must have 3.00 GPA or higher, and be up to date on service hours and have good attendance
  • Applicants must submit 2 teacher/administrator recommendations
  • Applicants must complete application form
  • Applications will be reviewed by a committee that is appointed by the Principal
  • Applicants may be part of an interview process prior to selection

Once selected, students will be notified and expected to serve the following school year beginning in August.  As seniors they will experience a team retreat and begin to prepare to serve throughout the year at events such as:

  • New student Orientation, Open House
  • Junior Retreats
  • Freshman, Sophomore & Senior Days of Prayer
  • Reconciliation, Adoration, Mass Set Up
