The Santa Catalina Lower and Middle School community is one of passion, curiosity, and friendliness. Constructing a campus environment that is supportive, encouraging, and kind is our top priority. We seek students whose eagerness to learn shines through and who we believe will best embody our school values of excellence, responsibility, service, and spirituality.

Each year, our admission staff seeks out the most qualified students to join our Santa Catalina family. Each grade level’s application process has different requirements, which may include teacher recommendations, a classroom visit, an admission test, and an on-campus interview. Beyond academic ability, what we look for in all applicants is enthusiasm, warmth, and a strong desire to learn. We work diligently to build a compassionate and close-knit community and to make a Santa Catalina education accessible to qualified students through tuition assistance.

If you and your child are interested in Santa Catalina, arrange a visit to our campus and come to an admission event.
