The Graduate Parent Organization is an organization that focuses on keeping parents of Regina Dominican connected with the school after their daughters have graduated.

The organization’s mission is to provide opportunities for our past parents to stay connected with Regina Dominican and the mission of the school.

Regina Dominican Graduate Parent Organization Mission Statement

The purpose of the Regina Dominican Graduate Parent Organization (GPO) is to provide a means for parents of Regina graduates to stay connected with the school by maintaining active participation and association with the Regina Community. The GPO’s mission is to sponsor and participate when available in purposeful activities which include:

    • hosting opportunities that allow Alumnae parents to return to the school to reconnect
    • supporting the faculty and staff with time and talents
    • attending fundraising events of Regina Dominican
    • promoting the school to the community at large

Regina Dominican Graduate Parents Katie and John Nicolau share their testimonial about their daughter Ellen and how Regina helped shape her into the strong, confident, faith-filled woman she is today.

Graduate Parent Organization Calendar of Events

Spring Play @ Auditorium
Mar 22 @ 7:00 pm

The Brother’s Grimm Spectaculathon, by Don Zolidis: The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are turned on their heads in this fast-paced, rollicking ride as two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 stories ranging from classics like Snow White, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel to more bizarre, obscure stories like The Devil’s Grandmother and The Girl Without Hands. A wild, free-form comedy with lots of audience participation and madcap fun.
