Campus Life

Extracurricular activities available as an extension of the regular school program.

Athletics



Dominican International School recognizes that sports activities are an integral and valuable part of a student’s experience at school. We believe that an effective and inclusive athletics program can support students’ learning by developing:

It further creates opportunities to strengthen the school – student – parent – community bond.

By applying Christian principles in all extra-curricular activities, students no longer act only as individuals, but assume the obligations of being a member of a team and representative of the school. We must remember as coaches, players, fans and parents, that people will judge our athletics program and Dominican International School (DIS) by the Christian values that we display at each extra-curricular function.

Objectives
