San Domenico

“At San Domenico, we believe that what students do with their education is as important as their academic performance.

Nestled on 515-acres, in the warm, rolling hills of San Anselmo, just north of San Francisco, San Domenico is California’s oldest independent school. We offer an unparalleled, co-ed, K-12 education, along with the option for high school students to opt for flex or full boarding school.

With a far-reaching, private, bus system and international boarding program, SD enrolls students from regions throughout the Bay Area and around the world.

While we provide an innovative and progressive education, anchored by our 165-year-old history and the Dominican spirit of inquiry, SD is composed of families of many faiths, cultures, backgrounds, and identities. We strive to be a community that provides students with a living, breathing example of creativity, inclusivity, flexibility, and innovation, balanced with the strength of tradition.

In the words of our Lower School Director, “Each classroom is alive with literature, student writing, art and math visuals, learning centers and natural light.”

We welcome you to come for a visit! Enjoy our organic garden, tour our campus, and meet our teachers and students. To schedule your visit, contact our Admissions Department. We look forward to seeing you at SD!”
