Santa Catalina Lower and Middle School students outside

 

 

Student Life

A truly meaningful community.

What happens outside the classroom is every bit as important as what happens in it. Field trips that inspire wonder. Service projects that encourage responsibility. Character education that starts students on a journey of self-discovery. We give our students all the space they need—to play, to learn, and to grow.
