Welcome to St. Dominic School, a Preschool through Eighth Grade coeducational Catholic school located in the historic city of Benicia, California. We are a ministry of St. Dominic Parish, which was established in 1854 by the Dominican Order of Priests, and are a part of the Diocese of Sacramento.
We are fully accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), our most recent self-study having been completed in 2013, earning us accreditation through 2019.
To encourage our students to get to know each other better and mentor one another, St. Dominic School enlists a program called Faith Families. Students are grouped into a school “family," led by an Eighth Grader and consisting of eight other students, one from each grade. Kindergartners become the newest members of school “Faith Families” each September. These “families” will meet each month on a designated day to take part in activities that focus on character education traits following selected themes each school year.
