Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Academy

A Catholic Montessori School

The mission of Saint Dominic’s Academy is to provide a comprehensive education for our children in body, mind and spirit, based on the precepts and teachings of the Catholic Church and established in accordance with all of the applicable regulations of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. While working in cooperation with families, our program implements the teaching and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori, providing an environment that stimulates the child’s natural curiosity and prepares him/her to become an independent, self-reliant and compassionate human being.

Registration is now open for the 2019-20 school year. We have opened a new Elementary classroom and so have room to accept more students. All classes have availability, though the Kindergarten is almost full.

Please click Saint-Dominic’s-Academy_regform_2019 to download the registration form. We highly recommend that you visit the school before registering so you can see how the Montessori method works and determine if it is right for your child and your family.

Tick Reduction Program: Our students play outside every day and many play in the woods . . . everyday. It is a great feature of our school. Yet, we are concerned about ticks and the diseases they carry, so our parents have begun a tick reduction program. Here is a document with information for parents:Saint Dominic’s Tick Reduction Recommendation Sheet (1)

“It is possible to see a clear analogy between
the Shepherd in the Church and that of the
prudent and generous educator in the Montessori
method, who with tenderness, with love and with
a wise evaluation of gifts, knows how to discover
and bring to light the most hidden virtues and
capacities of the child.”
– Saint Pope John XXIII
