Message from Head of School
Mount Saint Dominic Academy is a college preparatory school for young women. Established in 1892, the Mount remains rooted in the Dominican traditions of our history and dedicated to the modern realization of our mission: to help our students discover their gifts and talents, with the expectation that they will use them to make the world a better place.
Our students, who represent diverse ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds, learn and develop in an environment that fosters excellence, respect, appreciation, and integrity.
An education at the Mount reflects the Four Pillars of Dominican life—study, prayer, mission, and community—as the foundation for a successful and meaningful future. Prepared with this foundation, our students go on to make a lasting impact on the world we share.
Catherine of Siena, the Dominican scholar and saint, said “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire,” inspiring her followers to identify their unique purposes in life and, in so doing, make a lasting contribution to society.
At the Mount, we call on our students to find inspiration in Saint Catherine’s words, not just during their time with us, but in their lives after graduation.
An education at the Mount is a journey of continuing growth. An education at the Mount is an investment in your daughter’s future.
