Welcome from Principal Cara Dolnik

Welcome from Principal Cara Dolnik

Welcome San Dieguito High School Academy families and students!

I am excited to join San Dieguito High School Academy as your Principal for the 2022-23 school year! We are off to a wonderful start as we celebrate the 86th year of our campus. SDA is well-known for being a creative, caring and inclusive school rich with opportunities for students to learn and grow into young adults. We are honored to have you as a part of the legacy and tradition of the esteemed Mustang family.  

As an educator, I am celebrating my 24th year, beginning my career as a high school math teacher then moving to site administration at both the high school and middle school level for the past 17 years.  The last 11 years have been in SDUHSD, three as Assistant Principal at Torrey Pines High School, four as Principal at Carmel Valley Middle School and the last four as Principal at Diegueño Middle School. Regardless of my role, I have always been a part of caring and collaborative teams in education, and I am happy to begin the next leg of my journey here at SDA. 

With Mustang Pride,

Cara Dolnik
