We Welcome All

Our service trips, volunteer opportunities and student groups guide students toward a spiritually enriching experience at Dominican and support the Dominican Ideals of Study, Reflection, Community and Service.

  • Reflection: We offer communal prayer and contemplative practices to help students learn and grow in faith and understanding.
  • Service: We offer several immersion trips and volunteer opportunities. 
  • Community:  Our student leaders guide their peers toward a spiritually enriching experience at Dominican.
  • Study: We are all life-long learners!
