St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School



President's Message

Dear Friends,

I want to personally thank you for visiting the website of one of our schools, Holy Family Catholic School and St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School.  I am most grateful for your interest in seeking a faith-based education within our communities.  As Catholic educators, we are committed to providing a school environment that is grounded in the Gospel message, enriched by our service to others, and driven by the mission of the school. 

Our schools are located in northwest Austin, and are part of the Diocese of Austin.  They serve a wide geographic area by offering exceptionally strong academic programs for students from PreK through the 12th grade.  Two separate but adjoined campuses combine for a total of over 55 beautiful acres.  The schools are independently administered by a local Principal, but share common governance with the President.  As President, I seek to support each Principal in their effort to develop our schools, ensure our Catholic identity and plan strategically for the future.  My office and staff focus primarily in the areas of institutional advancement, finance, facilities and strategic planning for both schools.  We believe that there is strength in this somewhat unique governance model, by offering additional opportunities for professional collaboration and shared resources.

We welcome many new students each year in our schools, and I encourage prospective families to attend one of our planned gatherings offered by the Admission Offices.  Participants will continue to learn more about the special nature of these school communities and the process for enrollment.

Again, thank you for your interest in our schools.

In Christ,


Joan Wagner, Ph. D.
