Hoban Dominican High School was one of only three all-female Catholic high school located in Cleveland, Ohio. It was located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cleveland. The academic environment provided a 12 to 1 student to faculty ratio with an average of 23 students per class. 96% of Hoban Dominican students were Catholic and represented over 70 parishes. A superior faculty had dedicated itself to educating the young women of Hoban Dominican High School.


Hoban Dominican was closed in 1971 by the diocese. Hoban Dominican's campus was sold to the Cleveland Metropolitan School District in 1973. The campus was then changed to a co-ed public school in Cleveland, Whitney M. Young Middle School in 1973. In 2007 it was renamed to Whitney M. Young School, then in 2009 Whitney M. Young High School. The original crosses that were on the building remain in place, except for the one on the school's chimney. With the closing of Hoban Dominican High School, St. Joseph Academy and Erieview Catholic became the only area Catholic high school in the City of Cleveland dedicated to the education of young women.


Hoban Dominican was in compliance with the State of Ohio Accreditation Board and was a member in good standing of the North Central Association of Secondary Schools and Colleges since opening and of the Ohio Catholic Schools Accrediting Association since its inception.
