Mission & Sponsors


Edgewood, a Catholic high school, educates the whole student for a life of learning, service, and personal responsibility through a rigorous academic curriculum that embraces the Sinsinawa Dominican values of Truth, Compassion, Justice, Community and Partnership.


Venerable Father Samuel Mazzuchelli, OP, founded the Sinsinawa Dominican Congregation in 1847. In 1881, the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa founded Edgewood High School to carry out their mission to preach and teach. In 2023, five congregations of Dominican Sisters in the United States collaborated to create Dominican Veritas Ministries (DVM) to sponsor all of their schools, including Edgewood High School, and continue to provide guidance, support, and official Vatican recognition of each school’s Dominican heritage and mission.
