Why All Girls?

The Power of All-Girls

If you want your daughter to reach her full potential, Regina Dominican is the school for you and your family.

Regina Dominican’s all-girls environment will give your daughter the confidence to push herself. Our faculty and staff will challenge your daughter to excel, teach her to be a confident leader in her community, and inspire her to live up to her full potential.
 
Regina Dominican is a school where your daughter can learn that there is enormous potential and power in being a girl, and nothing can stand in her way.

A recent Cornell University study found that only 4% of female students choose a college major in engineering, mathematics or the physical sciences, compared to 12% of male students. Regina Dominican students are changing this narrative. 46% of Regina Dominican's Class of 2020 chose a college major in the engineering, mathematics, physical sciences or health fields.

Students enrolled in single-sex environments report having more confidence than their peers at coeducational institutions. Some even report that their college professors can spot an all-girls school graduate.
