Why choose Catalina?

Challenge yourself

Passionate teachers inspire students to take on challenges from AP and Advanced Topic classes to an amazing marine research program that turns Monterey Bay into a living classroom. Students learn from the best: Our teachers are experts in their subjects, with 78 percent holding advanced degrees.

 

Hit college with confidence

Our college counseling team works closely with each student to help her find the college that’s right for her. At Catalina, 82 percent of seniors are accepted into their first-choice college or university—and every graduate leaves empowered to pursue her passions.

 

Girl power is real

An all girls environment means girls can be themselves. It means they hold every position of leadership. It means they can fully engage in the classroom. It means lifting each other up, always. It means so much more.

 

Expand your worldview

All students benefit from boarding school, whether they live on campus or in the local community. With classmates from across the U.S. and other countries, girls gain a different perspective and make lifelong friends they may not have met otherwise.
