Mission Statement

The community of St. Dominic Catholic School is committed to guiding students toward educational excellence, spiritual growth, and service to God and others.

St. Dominic School Philosophy
We believe education fosters growth in all dimensions: spiritual, intellectual, social, physical and emotional. We believe in the importance of: Learning the values of the Gospel and encouraging students to use their gifts in service to the Church, community, and the world; respecting the dignity and differences of each person; lifelong spiritual development and learning.

About Our School
St. Dominic School opened its doors to welcome students on September 5, 1927. The school exists to educate the whole child in a Catholic Christian atmosphere. It emphasizes the child’s growth spiritually, morally, intellectually, physically, and emotionally. The focus on and the development of Catholic values set St. Dominic School apart from its educational counterparts. St. Dominic School is accredited through the Minnesota Nonpublic School Accreditation Association.

The school serves children in kindergarten through eighth grade. Each class has an average of twenty-five students. The kindergarten offers a full day program. Seventh and eighth grade students share time at Northfield Public Middle School. The public school provides classes in math, science, art, music, industrial technology, and FACS (family and consumer science).
