St. Dominic uses the PBIS framework in the teaching of social competencies and in the development of a safe and effective school environment.  Our three school-wide behavioral expectations are:

Be Safe

Be Responsible

Be a Follower of Christ


Welcome to St. Dominic School!  We are located in Delhi Township, 6 miles west of downtown Cincinnati.  The school, operated by St. Dominic Parish, is an Archdiocesan Roman Catholic elementary serving students in Pre-K through eighth grade.

St. Dominic School, “A Place to Grow”, proudly exists to serve the individual needs, both spiritual and educational, of the children of the parish and local community.

Our school strives to guide each student into becoming a faith-filled child of God through a strong religion program, numerous liturgical functions, active student ministries in the church and school, an emphasis on Catholic services and celebrations, an immersion in a character education program, and an active student-led Christian Service program.  Closely related to the spiritual development of each student is a strong academic program which utilizes differentiation as the groundwork to assist each child in recognizing his or her own potential. 

We are blessed with warm and caring staff members who are constantly searching for ways to grow professionally and spiritually.  Every year staff members apply for and received instructional grants to enhance their curriculum.  One of our teachers has attained National Board Certified Teacher while several others have received the NCEA Teacher of the Year Award for Region Six (Michigan and Ohio).  All faculty members serve on one of three school committees which work to continually improve every facet of the school. 

Knowing that the most important teachers for our students are their own parents, St. Dominic School strives to ensure parent support and involvement in many areas.  Each day parents volunteer in the building, work on PTO projects, or serve on the Education Commission.  The St. Dominic PTO has received the prestigious NCEA Home/School Award.

St. Dominic School has had the pleasure of witnessing the growth of many generations of students who are now doctors, engineers, attorneys, accountants, politicians, CEOs, and service persons.  Many of the graduates are faith-filled parents, grandparents, and great grandparents within the St. Dominic Parish community.  Since St. Dominic Parish opened its doors over seventy-five years ago, it is easy to see why St. Dominic School has become a place for children to grow.



Welcome to St. Dominic School!  My name is Bill Cavanaugh and I have the distinct honor and privilege of being the principal at St. Dominic School. 

St. Dominic School is an OCSAA accredited Catholic Pre-K through 8th grade school located in Delhi Township just outside Cincinnati, Ohio. We provide a Catholic education that focuses on academic excellence and spiritual guidance with highly-qualified teachers in a safe, structured parish community.

One of the things I felt, and continue to experience, is the sense of belonging you feel when you are a part of our parish school. We try our very best to treat others how we would like to be treated. The Golden Rule is alive and well at St. Dominic School.

There is a saying that is posted in all of the schools in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. It says, “Be it known to all who enter here that Christ is the reason for this school. He is the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes. He is the model of its faculty and the inspiration of its students.” Our Catholic faith is intertwined in all that we teach. We expect our students to be faith-filled life-long learners while they are here and when they graduate.

If you would like to speak with me, or take a tour of our school, please don’t hesitate to call me at 251-1276 Ext. 420 or e-mail me at bcavanaugh@stdominicdelhi.org
