Faculty & Staff

We are guided by our Dominican Pillars of Prayer, Study, Community, and Service. Our aim is to meet the spiritual, academic, social, emotional, and developmental needs of our students with a program that is flexible, consistent, and sustainable for our families. Our focused student-to-teacher ratio allows valuable small-group and individual attention.
