Tuition & Affordability

Invest in your child's future.

At Santa Catalina, learning is immersive, relationships are central, and there are countless opportunities to lead, grow, and create. That’s the true value of a Catalina education. The support, guidance, and skills students gain here set them up for success in high school and far beyond. The investment you make now will have a positive impact for years to come.

Santa Catalina is enriched by socioeconomic, religious, geographic, and cultural diversity. With a generous financial aid program, we are committed to enrolling excellent students—no matter what their economic situation might be.

Confident, highly educated, kind, inclusive ... these are just a few of the gifts that Santa Catalina has given my children. Gifts we could not have experienced without the incredible support of the financial aid program. Thankful is an understatement. This gift has made all the difference.
