Founded in 1850, San Domenico School Offers a 170-Year Tradition of Stability, Creativity, and Responsiveness

Tradition of Excellence

San Domenico

At San Domenico, our mission includes a commitment to recognize what it means to be human in a global community, and respond with integrity to the needs of the times. In today’s world, it may feel like the global norm is uncertainty. At SD, however, we carry on a 170-year legacy as California’s first independent school, providing not only excellence in education but, also, a sense of purpose.

Purpose-driven Education

San Domenico

Whether in on-campus or distance-learning mode, SD’s dedicated faculty and staff encourage our students to ask the big questions, explore their own values, and work together to promote a more inclusive, socially just, and sustainable community and world. Classes at SD are student-centered, allowing every student to develop his or her own creativity, critical thinking skills, and a love of learning.

Responsive HyFlex Model

San Domenico

SD’s robust and exceptional HyFlex model includes full days of learning with both synchronous and asynchronous learning, and appropriate academic challenge as well as social emotional support, extracurriculars, athletics, and community building. Even online – via Google Hangouts, Zoom, personal check-ins with teachers, portfolio project sharing, and video streaming – students experience joyful and meaningful learning.
