About St Dominic's College
St Dominic’s College, Cabra, was established in 1835 by the Dominican Sisters. The school is situated off the Navan Road, Dublin 7. St Dominic’s College sits in extensive mature grounds. The school has undergone major refurbishment resulting in state-of-the-art facilities within heritage buildings. St Dominic’s has a history of commitment to educational excellence, curriculum innovation and the development of the whole person.
St. Dominic’s motto ‘Veritas’ epitomises the aim of all Dominican schools and colleges – the pursuit of Truth in all its forms. It acknowledges the unique giftedness of each individual and their journey in discovering the truth about themselves, others, the universe they share, and the Creator of all. The results are a proud record of achievement each year.
St Dominic’s College, Cabra, is a privately owned, Voluntary Secondary School for girls. Our school is funded in part by the Department of Education and Science. St Dominic’s is a Catholic school with a Dominican ethos. We are proud to be under the Trusteeship of Le Chéile Trust.
The Dominican ethos continues to foster and create an attitude of Christian caring within the school community, supported and encouraged by the Board of Management, the Parents’ Association and by the Principal and staff. We are proud to continue the great tradition established by the Dominican Sisters in the educational development of young girls.
We are an inclusive school and we welcome students from other religious traditions. The Board of Management, staff, parents and pupils aim to provide an environment which allows and encourages each pupil to develop intellectually, physically, morally, socially and spiritually. In keeping with the characteristic of the Dominican spirit we make every effort to ensure that the uniqueness and dignity of each person is respected.
