Saint Dominic High school offers a college preparatory, value-centered, Catholic education to young women and men on Long Island. The key to Saint Dominic’s perennial attractiveness and success is this: the administration, faculty and staff respond to each student in a personal and caring manner, treating her or him as an individual with unique needs, aspirations, and potential. Very simply, here “You are a name, not a number!”
With an average class size of twenty-five and a student to faculty ratio of 12:1, Saint Dominic students excel in a curriculum designed to challenge the learning potential of each student. While offering a NYS Board of Regents Curriculum, students are able to go beyond state standards by taking college level, advanced placement, honors courses as well as our newly designed STEM program. These programs of study surpass the requirements set by New York State. Saint Dominic graduates are annually accepted to some of the world’s finest colleges and universities. In addition, the Class of 2016 secured approximately $22.1 million in academic, athletic and merit-based scholarships.
Our new Science, Technology, and Communications Center consists of five state-of-the-art labs. Saint Dominic has built and maintained research partnerships with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and The Oyster Bay Waterfront Center. We have also established a state of the art world language lab to be integrated into the Spanish and Italian curricula. The lab, believed to be one of the first on Long Island, will utilize technology so that students can learn interactively by speaking with and listening to native speakers. The presence of the lab will provide staff the ability to utilize cutting edge technology to curriculum at a college level.
Saint Dominic offers diverse programs in fine arts and athletics, allowing students to participate at a level consistent with their interests and abilities. Our school has one of the premier indoor athletic facilities on Long Island, the Monsignor James E. Collins Center; we also have the beautiful fine arts center. The Charles B. Wang Saint Dominic Playing Fields, just 2.4 miles away from our main campus, is comprised of two baseball, two softball, two lacrosse/soccer fields, four tennis courts, and a retreat house, making it among the finest comprehensive facilities on Long Island. Saint Dominic High School provides an exceptional learning experience on a beautiful campus in Oyster Bay!
