Mission Statement:

St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School is a co-educational, college preparatory school founded by the Diocese of Austin to prepare young men and women to become faith-filled, visionary and inspirational leaders in service to the Church and the world.

St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School is dedicated to its mission and to the Catholic community in and around the city of Austin. All interested students and families are encouraged to apply. The Admission Committee determines qualification of candidates for admission on the basis of the following:

1) student’s desire for a Catholic education,
2) completed application,
3) past educational records,
4) recommendations from previous teachers, including one English and one Mathematics instructor,
5) personal interview with the Admission Committee,
6) the demonstrated ability/potential to be successful in a college preparatory environment.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ADMISSION POLICY

St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School reviews and admits qualified international students.  International students apply using the same application as domestic students.  However, they must also submit a TOEFL score to ensure appropriate English competency as St. Dominic Savio does not have an ESL staff to assist international students with their work.

The Admission Staff at St. Dominic Savio also requires an interview.  The interview would preferably be conducted on-campus, if possible.  However, our staff understands that in some cases this may not be possible.  To accommodate these cases we will happily conduct an interview via Skype.

St. Dominic Savio is not a boarding school, nor do we have the capabilities to assist international students to find housing.  Therefore it is the responsibility of the student and their family to find appropriate housing and transportation while attending St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School.
