Situated at the intersection of Van Aken Blvd. and Norwood Rd in Shaker Heights, St. Dominic is a Catholic elementary school serving grades K-8. Here, you will discover an environment rich in opportunity, diversity, friendship and faith. Our mission – to create confident, competent, compassionate leaders – emanates into every aspect of our academic, spiritual, creative and athletic life, and inspires students to become their very best.

Founded in 1950, St. Dominic School enjoys a rich legacy of academic distinction. With a well-rounded education grounded in moral values, alumni of SDS have gone on to assume leadership roles in most every aspect of business, political, community and spiritual life.

With capacity enrollment of 225, the St. Dominic student body is intentionally small. Having one class per grade allows us the small teacher-student ratios and a warm, family-oriented atmosphere in which students thrive. We teach all students at an accelerated pace, introducing new subjects as children show signs of readiness, while devoting extra resources to those who need them.

Catholic beliefs form the foundation of our philosophy and are infused throughout our school to foster faith, personal values and community service.
