ISD has been a Catholic school since its foundation in 1961 by the Roman Congregation of Saint Dominic and in the values it embodies. Since April 2021, ISD has joined the French educational group Odyssey, which specializes in international school education. Odyssey is committed to protecting ISD’s Catholic identity by building on the Dominican values that have shaped the institution’s educational philosophy since its inception.
"The fundamental ambition of Odyssey is to make ISD an international campus of reference, in Europe, for the French education network abroad. For this, the group is committed to carrying out a long-term project term in line with its principles: educational excellence, personal development of students and international openness."Luc Chatel Executive Chairman
"Thanks to this convergence, the Roman Congregation of Saint Dominic took the decision, with enthusiasm and confidence, to hand over full responsibility for the management of the Institute to the Odyssey group, thus ensuring a future worthy of its ambitions and its history."Sœur Marie-Théo Manaud Provincial
The Institut International Saint-Dominique of Rome is a school offering open education to all with respect for the beliefs of others.
Founded by the Roman Congregation of Saint Dominic, its educational programme is marked by human, intellectual and spiritual values characteristic of catholic education and stemming from Dominican charism.
The ISD is currently an international French sixth form school belonging to the Odyssey network. Interpersonal relationships in the school are based on kindness and fairness and focus on building a climate of fraternity. This attitude towards each other is as fundamental as the duty of study and works of intelligence.
It is based on this continuously and cooperatively developed responsibility that we strive for excellence, in view of the harmonious growth of each individual in all his/her dimensions. Adults support the efforts of students in all circumstances and help them to develop a moral and spiritual conscience, through specific time periods dedicated to human and spiritual awakening and religious culture. Young people are thus given a source of unity and the tools to guide their lives.
Charity projects are encouraged with the aim of allowing all educational community members to get involved, together supporting a programme that helps the most vulnerable groups and contributing to build a world where each person is recognised in their dignity and for their own value. True to the intuition of its founders and responsive to today’s educational challenges, the Institut Saint-Dominique of Rome is an educational establishment upholding the values that inspired the Dominican Order: Truth, Mercy, Freedom and Joy, finding their source in God.
