Principal’s Message

Welcome to St. Dominic School!

I extend my warmest welcome to each and every one of you to our beloved St. Dominic Catholic School in Benicia. As the principal, I feel privileged to be part of this exceptional community dedicated to spiritual growth, academic excellence, and character development.

Our school holds a proud legacy of providing a nurturing environment that fosters a love for learning, embraces Catholic values, and prepares students for a lifetime of success. We are committed to upholding the rich traditions and teachings of the Catholic faith while ensuring a well-rounded education that prepares our students for a changing world. Students are involved in weekly class Mass and monthly all-school Mass, sacramental preparation, daily prayer, and service-learning opportunities.

At St. Dominic School our dedicated and talented teachers are not only passionate about academic achievement but also deeply committed to instilling moral values, empathy, and compassion in our students. We aim to create an inclusive and supportive community where every child feels valued, respected, and encouraged to reach their full potential. Through experiences and by example, we guide our students to live out the values of love, respect, integrity, and service to others.

Our curriculum is designed to provide a rigorous academic foundation that challenges and inspires our students. We strive to create a stimulating learning environment that encourages critical thinking, problem-solving skills, creativity and a life-long love for learning. Through a comprehensive range of subjects, including language arts, mathematics, social studies, and the arts, we aim to cultivate well-rounded individuals who are prepared to meet the challenges of their next important step in their educational journey, high school. 

We acknowledge our parents as their child’s first teachers. We invite all parents and guardians to actively engage in their child’s ongoing educational journey by becoming involved in our school community. This partnership is vital in fostering a supportive and positive learning environment. Together, we create an atmosphere where students flourish academically, spiritually, and socially. 

Please reach out to me if you would like to schedule a tour or find out more about St. Dominic School. You can see for yourself that our children and teachers truly see their school as a second home; their joy is undeniable!

Peace and blessings, 

Penny Ogden
