Letter from the Principal

Welcome to St. Dominic Catholic School!

As the Interim Principal, I am committed to working with parents, students, our community, and the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to create a school where the values of our mission are present in all that we do – inspiring children to excel as confident leaders, critical thinkers, and responsible citizens in a Catholic, values-based, community.

Professionally I have been a part of Catholic education in our Archdiocese since 2018.  During this time I have been a member of our amazing St. Dominic school.  I am a product of Catholic education having attended All Saints in Lakeville.  It is very rewarding to be a part of  a Catholic school, to see how every staff member has the opportunity to shape the lives of our students on a daily basis.

While our students consistently perform above average on formal assessments, we pride ourselves on providing a unique and tailored educational experience that supports students in reaching their potential. In the areas of curriculum and academics, we employ research-based and engaging learning activities to ensure that we are meeting the needs of all learners and preparing our students for their future. This is the foundation for reaching our ultimate goal of guiding students in the development of their intellectual and spiritual character, as well as, helping them find and nurture their God-given gifts and talents to share with the world.

As Interim Principal of this exceptional school, it is my role to ensure that the professional development of our teachers enhances our curriculum through ongoing implementation of new educational methods and materials. Our smaller class sizes, coupled with our exceedingly dedicated teachers, allow us to truly individualize learning for all children of St. Dominic School.

I invite you to browse our website and to contact us at office@schoolofstdominic.org or (507)645-8136 for additional information or to schedule a tour.

Welcome to St. Dominic School!
