Open Houses

The best way to get to know Santa Catalina is to visit us! We hold two open houses each year, in November and January. At these events, you can explore signature programs; sample our academic and co-curricular offerings; and talk to students about clubs, activities, leadership, and campus life. You can also tour campus to see our amazing facilities.

Virtual Tours

Virtual tours consist of a short welcome from the admission staff followed by a personalized student-led tour in a Zoom breakout room. The next virtual tour is offered on Wednesday, March 27, from 5:00–5:30 p.m. PST. Fill out our Visit Day form to sign up.


Santa Catalina in Your Area

Throughout the school year, our admission staff travels across California and beyond to meet with students and parents who are interested in finding out more about Santa Catalina. Most of our travel takes place between September and November; however, we will have some scheduled events in the spring. School fairs and admission-related events will be added to this site as they emerge, so please check back periodically.

In-Person Fairs

High school admission fairs are a great way to check out multiple schools at once. Santa Catalina participates in fairs across the country. Be sure to stop by our table to learn more about us!


Receptions are hosted by Catalina families and friends throughout the fall season. These are great opportunities to meet current students, alumnae, and families and to see Catalina through their eyes.
