A Message From The Principal

Welcome to the 2018/19 school year. We are eager and excited to welcome students back from summer holidays and once again, look forward to working with all stakeholders as the year unfolds. Our new division’s faith theme “God, let them see You in me” will be embedded in everything we do this school year.

At St. Dominic Catholic High School and in the presence of God, we establish a belonging which engages the 21st-century learner to aspire to excellence and value responsible citizenship. We create an environment of trust and believe that an involved school community will successfully confront change and manipulate it to foster student learning. Servant leadership will always be a vital part of the staff and Catholic Education will always be seen as our responsibility to undertake daily. We are in our sixth year of participation in Alberta Education’s High School Redesign initiative (HSRD), and we are utilizing this to meet the needs of all our learners. Course fast-tracking, credit recovery and online learning are all targeted components of this initiative that we have focused upon to nurture student growth and engage students for self-advocacy in their student success plan.

Located in the Confluence Campus, we offer a multitude of extracurricular programs that complement our full selection of academic courses. Off-campus Education, Special Projects and Online courses are available for all students so that flexibility and choice can meet individual needs for success.

We welcome all students and families from all faith backgrounds, including international students, to come for a tour and consider us as a viable option.

Mr. Patrick Hughes
