St Dominic’s Catholic College is a Year 7-13 girls’ school situated in West Auckland

Our vision is to challenge students to achieve excellence by delivering a holistic education based on the living values of the Catholic Dominican tradition.


Our Special Character 

St Dominic’s is committed to creating a caring and supportive environment where each student can feel special, loved, understood and appreciated and which emphasizes excellence in academic learning, personal development and involvement in the community.

Academic Programmes

Our restricted maximum roll number means that we are small enough to care but large enough to challenge and provide a well-rounded education which ensures that our girls are equipped with the learning skills and knowledge that will prepare them for the future.

A full, stimulating and relevant curriculum is offered for all students.

During the holidays, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award scheme Gold students walked the Heaphy Track.  A five day, qualifying Gold expedition.  Some rain, some sun, lots of wekas and sandflies.


The following students achieved in the top 1% of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific in the ICAS Exams with High Distinction: Stella Hammond, Lucy Li and Sophie Hepburn.

Congratulations also to Joanna Tao who was the recipient of the Young Leaders Award for the whole of New Zealand. Joanna has been involved in our Environmental Group and was awarded the nationwide Young Leaders Award for her work and contribution to both St Dominic’s College and the wider community.

The following students were awarded Sports Scholarships at the recent Don Oliver Sports Foundation Awards: Kanah Andrews-Nahu Bronze Award for Weightlifting and Yzabelle Laualofa-Tevao for Basketball – congratulations girls!



For parents seeking advice on managing device use in their own home, we recommend watching the Nigel Latta programme “Screenagers: Living On-line” which is available on TVNZ On Demand. His Power Off Tips are also worth a read and some thought. If you are looking for more information on on-line issues in general, we recommend you visit the Netsafe parenting pages. You may also like to check out the Our Pact app which gives parents some measure of control over their child’s mobile devices.




Rich Tradition of Learning and Achievement

Our students enjoy a high rate of success in national examinations and, later, at tertiary institutions. 
St Dominic’s offers a rich curriculum which ensures that there is opportunity for students to develop their academic, spiritual, cultural and physical potential.

We believe (and research confirms) that girls can more easily reach their full potential in a single sex school. A Gifted and Talented programme is offered for those girls identified as likely to benefit from additional extension and challenge.

Students Receive Individualised Assistance in Their Studies

All our students have their own academic coach from Year 7 through to Year 13 to advise on goal setting, review progress and to assist in determining the next steps required to continue the student’s academic achievement.

Learning support is available for any students needing a helping hand to build the capacities needed to achieve in the future.

Confidence Building Leadership Opportunities

At St Dominic’s we recognise the value of developing each student’s confidence to be a part of a team and to play their part as a leader.

Many leadership opportunities exist with each form class having a class captain, environmental captain, arts captain and sports captain while roles are also available as Peer Mediators, Ambassadors, Body Image Leaders and Eucharistic Ministers to name but a few.

Enrol Your Daughter at a School that Encourages Achievement in All Areas

“What’s great about St Dom’s is the people. We have the warmest, most considerate teachers I have ever met. Their passion for education and teaching reflects off them and causes a chain reaction of positivity within the classroom – Grace, Year 10 student
"As parents we have always endorsed and encouraged certain values and standards in the upbringing of our daughters. Sending all four of our girls to St Dominic's College made it possible for our shared standards and values to be upheld and supported.With the College’s strong focus on academic achievement, personal growth and cultural diversity, we have no regrets in choosing St Dominic's. We greatly appreciate the positive impact the College has had on each one of our four  daughters personal and educational journeys!" - Wendy, parent
“I really like the international friendships I can make here. Through my school years I have made friends from a variety of different cultural backgrounds. We also have the opportunity to study a range of subjects in all four areas, academic, sports, the arts and cultural – Alicia, Year 10 student

Celebrating your daughter's achievement is what we like to do best at St Dominic's Catholic College. We encourage your daughter to foster her talents while striving to make a difference with her talent and skills. Our vision is to develop confident young women to contribute positively to society and live through the values of the Catholic Dominican tradition.

Latayvia Tualasea Tautai is one of many St Dominic's students who deserves our recognition. The 18 year old shared her views on gender equality at a Suffrage Day event on the Suffrage Memorial steps in front of the Auckland Art Gallery. Latayvia also won the speech competition run by the National Council of Women.

Another two students, Jesse Kanapi and Lynette Idio, have been selected for the Rotary Science and Technology Forum next year.

Join us for an Open Morning on Wednesday 19th October at 9am. Enrolment application packs for 2017 will be available. Come along and discuss your daughter's next steps in her education journey.
