Now in its 80th year of offering a high quality, Catholic education to young men and women, St. Dominic School is located at 1684 White Plains Road in the Bronx, NY. A parish high school, St. Dominic’s holds the distinction of being the oldest high school in the Diocese of Rockville Center. The students and staff refer to the school as “The Parish Gem.” From its earliest days it has attracted students from communities inside as well as outside the local area.
The school fosters within its walls, as well as its curriculum, a sense of community and prayer, whereby the children come to the awareness that the time they spend in the classroom is not only an extension of their school day but rather a special time where they come to deepen their faith. The school has consistently been able to offer education and religion to those of all regions and not only localized to the specific Bronx County neighborhood.
The hope and intent of the founding pastor, Monsignor Charles J. Canivan, was to make St. Dominic Parish “an educational center that included a high school of outstanding merit.” The mission of St. Dominic High School is to educate young people in a community dedicated to Gospel values and Catholic teachings. Ministering to students of diverse abilities, St. Dominic High School strives to achieve wholeness through personal holiness, academic excellence, and social responsibility. [source]
