ABOUT US

Welcome to St. Dominic School, a preschool through eighth grade coeducational Catholic school located in the historic city of Benicia, CA.  We are a ministry of St. Dominic Parish, which was established in 1854 by the Dominican Order of Priests, and are a part of the Diocese of Sacramento.  We are fully accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), our most recent self-study having been completed in 2013, earning us accreditation through 2025.

 

OUR COMMUNITY

Our community of supportive families work together to provide a warm environment where everyone is welcome.  Through our Parent Teacher Group (PTG), Room Parent program, and Mentor Family outreach, new families are personally welcomed into our thriving community and are encouraged to volunteer, contribute, and become active participants in their child’s education.

 
 

OUR FAITH

An educational ministry of St. Dominic's Catholic Church, St. Dominic School places emphasis on providing a religious foundation for all students.  We ask God to bless our work and we, as a community, recognize the importance of both formal and informal prayer.  Sacramental preparation is done in conjunction with the parish’s Religious Education Program. 

The Religion curriculum challenges students to participate in worship, to act as a community, and to realize that each person deserves love and respect.  It allows students to apply the truths and skills they learn in day-to-day living in their words and actions.  Students study scripture, learn Catholic doctrine, and to study and prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.  The Religion curriculum challenges students to respond to the needs of others, to live peacefully and justly, and to care for creation as God’s stewards.
