St. Dominic Catholic School offers a variety of extracurricular activities. Extracurricular activities have shown a positive effect on student behavior, grades, attitude toward school, social skills, self-confidence, and connection to their school. Through extracurricular activities students learn lessons in leadership, teamwork, organization, problem solving, time management, and more. Extracurriculars are also a way for students to discover their God-given talents.
