Mount St. Dominic Academy, established by the Sisters of St. Dominic of Caldwell in 1892, is a Catholic, college preparatory school for young women. We are dedicated to the education of young women from a variety of ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds.
The Mount community is committed to seeking the Truth in all aspects of life. The students are able to realize their individual gifts and talents in an atmosphere that fosters academic excellence, respect for diversity, appreciation for the gifts of creation, moral integrity and a heritage rich in Christ-centered values.

From the trees upon the hilltops to the valley down below,
Shines the splendor of the glory that is ours.
We’re the students here assembled with our voices raised on high,
And the echo softly dies among the towers.
We sing praise of Mount St. Dominic the school we love so well,
With her teaching, strength and beauty ever true.
We will spend our lives upholding the ideals she gave to us,
Faithful ever to her principles we’ll prove.
Through you Alma Mater we’ve found our way. M S D.
Through you Alma Mater we’ll win the day. M S D.
Catholic leaders we will be, Mount Saint Dominic Academy
Pledge we always our loyalty. M S D.
