Sean Grieshop from the Savio Class of 2017, is recognized by USA Swimming after earning a 4.0-grade point average and winning the men’s 400-yard individual medley title at the 2016 Winter National Championships. We are proud to announce Grieshop received the only perfect score among the 1,158 swimmers honored this year and has been recognized as a member of the Scholastic All-America Team for the third year in a row. For more results and details from the original story, please read more.
St. Dominic Savio was a perfect match for Sean and I'm so glad he "found" you all. The academic foundation you cemented has already made a difference at Cal Berkeley (he is loving it, and doing very well, by the way!). On top of that, you helped him realize the role God plays in this entire process, and that is going to guide him for the rest of his life. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for taking Sean in, helping him succeed in the pool, the classroom, and most importantly, in life. - Sean's Mother, Mrs. Anne Grieshop

Sr. Dominica Hooper has taught Science at St. Dominic Savio for the past two years. She belongs to the Dominican Order of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. On July 25, 2017, Sr. Dominica made her final vows in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
“Final vows are the sign and visible witness of the the total self-gift each Sister gives to her Spouse, Jesus Christ, who in turn, receives her vows “for all my life” through the Church. We thank God for His generous Graces to all our Community!”
Congratulations Sr. Dominica!

On Wednesday, July 26, 2017, two St. Dominic Savio CHS class of 2017 graduates Eden Desta and Thanh Tran, were honored as recipients of the St. David's Neal Kocurek Scholarship.
The scholarships are awarded to students who exemplified Dr. W. Neal Kocurek’s leadership and commitment to the community. Dr. Kocurek was passionate about the power of education.
Both, Eden and Thanh will receive $7,500 per year, for up to four years, in their undergraduate education in a health science related field. The scholarship will also apply to any four year graduate program and medical school in any university in Texas. Eden and Thanh were among 55 other recipients, from 28 different high schools. We are so proud of these two!
“This event left a strong impression on me, it was clear that the St. David's foundation sees unlimited potential in this talented group of young people. Not only do they award a life changing amount of money to each recipient over the next eight years but they also provide each winner with a mentor in the health care field to help them in every area of their education and training.” ~ Mrs. Marina Glava, St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School, College Advisor
