Welcome to the St Dominic’s Priory College website. As a Reception to Year 12 Catholic girls’ school, we are inspired by the Gospel to nurture each child as she grows in wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Encouraged by highly committed staff, students at St Dominic’s are motivated to achieve personal excellence whilst maintaining a collaborative approach to their learning.
Supported by a strong community of parents, old scholars, and friends, together we celebrate our history as an outstanding school for girls since 1884. The Dominican motto, Veritas (Truth) unites us with Dominican education across the world and guides our students to find and nurture their own truth while supporting others to do the same. St Dominic’s girls develop positive relationships with each other where they value honesty, resilience, and respect. Our College is a school of excellence where girls are challenged, nurtured, and inspired to grow into confident and compassionate women.

St Dominic’s Priory College acknowledges that we reside on the traditional Country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains and pays respect to Elders past and present. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land. We acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today. And we also extend that respect to other Aboriginal Language Groups and other First Nations.
