Your Call to Lead

Dear St. Dominic Family,

St. Dominic High School is an amazingly positive, transformative place, where young men and women grow in faith and knowledge as they prepare for college and the rest of their personal and professional lives. I often hear from our alumni that St. Dominic truly shaped who they are today. St. Dominic develops the whole student – spiritually, academically, and in service to our community. We strive to take a holistic approach in developing our students.

As we move toward 100 years since Assumption High School's founding, St. Dominic is in a position of strength. We are continuing our quest for growth and academic excellence. Called to Lead expands our campus footprint, but more importantly, increases the rigor of our curriculum. The centerpiece of this campaign is the Center for the Sciences, which will feature an expanded entrance and common area, a state-of-the-art broadcast journalism studio, and additional labs for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses.

Through this campaign, you, too, are called to lead.

We reach out to you – alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends who believe in and care about St. Dominic – to answer the call with your support. By answering the Call to Lead together, we will realize the promise of this campaign: developing our students into leaders for generations to come. Thank you in advance for your generosity and continuing to support the mission of St. Dominic.

Educating with a higher purpose,

Jim Welby
President, St. Dominic High School

"As a St. Dominic student, the hands-on activities I experienced in science class fueled my interest in STEM and my desire to work with others. Now, as a teacher, I can empower the next generation of St. Dominic students to engage with science through hands-on labs, interactive simulations and collaborative projects, helping them build knowledge and respect for others and the earth."
