The Regina Dominican Way: Unparalleled Excellence | Chicago North Shore Moms

Written by Regina Dominican High School*

Grounded in the spirit of the Adrian Dominican sisters, Regina Dominican is uniquely able to inspire, shape and prepare brave and confident young women. Regina Dominican delivers a tailored experience that both supports and challenges young women – intellectually and personally. We instill a joy for learning and a commitment to inclusion and compassion, along with a challenging academic foundation needed to excel beyond high school.



As we continue to write new chapters in our 60 plus year story, we are excited to share beloved traditions with the Class of 2027 and future Panthers and their families. These traditions include our Wednesday Morning All School Meetings, Dominican charisms, athletic contests, pep assemblies, and more! We are also thrilled to celebrate these events in our newly renovated Heart of the School which opened in May of 2023. Our new main entrance, updated cafeteria, locker-bay, and student commons, continue to provide a personalized high school experience for every young woman who walks through our halls.



There are over 10,000 Regina Girls in the world. Each with a different story but with one thing in common, part of their story was written at Regina Dominican. Lawyers, doctors, nurses, teachers, authors, chefs, politicians, engineers, architects, mothers, grandmothers, and sisters; all of whom have a chapter or two that involve plaid skirts, the infamous bathtub on the third floor and/or one or two iconic teachers that made an impact on their life. Accompanied with the Dominican value of Veritas(truth) and our personal value of Caritas(charitable love), Regina Girls have and continue to change the world, never shying away from a challenge.



We invite prospective students to attend a shadow day, Open House, or one of our many prospective student events to see what it means to be a Regina Dominican Panther!
