School Motto: Where Smart Girls Become Intelligent Women
Mission Statement: Dominican Academy, a Catholic college preparatory high school in the tradition of Saint Dominic, challenges and empowers intelligent young women to become spiritual, intellectual, moral, and socially responsible leaders in a global society.
Founded in 1897, it is a private, Catholic, college preparatory high school for girls, operated by the Dominican Sisters of Peace. It is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and is a two-time recipient of the Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education.
Dominican is situated in a safe, culturally rich location, and is easily accessible by subway, bus, or express bus. Students travel from all five boroughs, Westchester, Nassau County, and New Jersey to attend Dominican Academy. Our student body is ethnically diverse, representing over fifty nationalities and ethnic backgrounds, and 40 percent speak a language other than English at home. All classes are taught at an Honors or AP level.
