St. Mary's Dominican High School Veritas Shield

Student Profile

Cristin Angelo

Student Council

At the beginning of my eighth-grade year, I would have given a very simple reason for choosing Dominican, but Dominican is way more than I knew was possible. I’ve made memories through Rally Day and Spooky Fest, and I’m so grateful for the bonds I’ve made with girls I may not have otherwise met. Choose Dominican if you want a school where love, excitement, and prayer come into play when you need it most.

Get ready for the best years of your life! I chose Dominican for the sisterhood. Feeling comfortable and supported was essential during my high school search. Dominican has exceeded my expectations.

Carol Alley

Band/Drum Major

There were several factors that caused me to choose Dominican. The main one was Dominican’s marching band. I knew I wanted to continue to play music in high school, and I had always admired Dominican’s all-girl band. I am so glad this influenced my decision because I have made some of my best memories at Dominican by being a part of the band, whether it was playing at pep rallies or marching in parades.

Community means the most to me because of my enthusiasm for experiencing Dominican. I strive to have the best time with not only my best friends but also with new friends who I meet through new experiences. I love events that empower the meaning of sisterhood and family, where we can all be united.

To me, the pillar of community means the most because every other pillar that Dominican is built upon is based in community. This pillar is reflected in my daily life through the community of prayer, the community of study, and the community of service that Dominican provides. Worshipping at Mass, working with classmates to overcome academic challenges, and giving back to the community are all parts of the foundation that forms my identity as a Dominican woman.

Dominican immediately felt like home after I had visited a few times. Everyone was kind and welcoming, and the school offered vast opportunities for my interests and future.

Speech and Debate Team

Out of the four pillars, service means the most to me. I've used this pillar in my everyday life as a student at Dominican and even outside of school. Performing acts of service, either by donating to the can food drive or volunteering at a local summer camp, has taught me how to give back to my community. It has also made me part of a community that loves to give back.

Aubrie Duplantis

Debs Dance Team

Dominican offers a valuable education that will help later in life. We also participate in many fun activities such as Rally Day, Bleacher Swap, Carol Off, and grade-level Retreats. At Dominican, you will make friends that turn into family. Overall, Dominican is an incredible school where you can build strong bonds and lasting connections.
