Building a strong foundation for life through faith and education

Message from our New Principal:

Thank you for visiting our Saint Dominic Savio School Website.


I am humbled to introduce myself as the new principal of St. Dominic Savio School. I am honored and feel blessed to have the opportunity to lead a school with such persevering students, extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community. I feel very fortunate to continue being part of this school, and to support the students and families. I am also thrilled to introduce Ms. Dana Binder as the new vice principal. As a Savio Alumni herself, she has been part of the Savio family for twenty plus years. 


Professionally, I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty years. I have been a vice principal for nine years and worked with students ranging in age from TK through 8th grade in a variety of roles. I am excited to continue to share my experience, my openness to learn, my child-centered approach to support our students, and to work with you as a partner in education, to ensure your child’s success. 


St. Dominic Savio is committed to preserving the rich Salesian traditions and education that began during the founding of our school in September of 1956 by the Salesian Sisters. We are a school community which fosters the teaching of St. John Bosco of Reason, Religion, and Loving-Kindness.


Our mission is to provide a high quality education, rooted in tradition, with both new and proven learning approaches and implementation of technology that is a necessity in the 21st century classroom. Our primary objective is to meet the learning needs of each one of our students, preparing them for the world they will be entering when they graduate from St. Dominic Savio.


I invite you to come experience St. Dominic Savio for yourself. Take a tour through our facility and learning spaces where we live, pray, and work. Feel the warmth and welcome, and the joy and laughter, as our children and faculty work and play together. Join us for a weekly Mass and feel the certainty and grounding that a faith-based Salesian Catholic school provides.


We hope you will consider joining our St. Dominic Savio family community.




Mr. Gerardo Hilario M.Ed.
