Religious Instruction

Students at all grade levels experience an education deeply rooted in faith. Central to this are the five Sinsinawa Dominican values of truth, compassion, justice, community, and partnership. Our standards include age appropriate study and activities in sacred scripture, Bible study, doctrine, prayer and spirituality, saints, customs, Church history, the role of the laity, sisters and ordained leadership, sacraments, stewardship, and the importance of prayer.

As the students mature in age and spirituality, it becomes requisite to give back to their school and community through service hours.
