Dominic College, a Catholic school in Glenorchy, was formed in 1973 by an amalgamation of three schools, including Savio College, formerly Boys' Town, which was a children's Home and school that received child migrants in the early 1950s. Dominic College has a strong old boys' network that includes the former child migrants. In October 2012, the College celebrated the sixtieth anniversary of their arrival at Boys' Town.


Dominic College has its origins in the Salesian and Dominican orders. It was formed in 1973 by an amalgamation of St John's Primary, Savio Primary, Holy Name School, and Savio College.
