Open Houses

Come visit our campus and get to know Santa Catalina and its community! At our open houses, held in November and January, you can explore signature programs; sample our academic and co-curricular subjects; and talk to students about clubs, activities, leadership, and campus life. You can also tour campus to see our amazing facilities.

For prospective boarding families, make it a weekend in Monterey and complete two of the application requirements while you're here! Schedule your Visit Day, either the Friday before the open house or the Monday after, and consider taking the SSAT on campus the Saturday prior to the open house.

What is Visit Day?
It is a personalized campus visit for the applicant and her parent(s)
on a school day. Your time on campus includes attending our all-school assembly, going to a class and on a tour with students, visiting the residential areas of campus, and interviewing with an admission representative. These spaces are limited, so reserve today!

Can I take the SSAT at Santa Catalina?
Yes, Santa Catalina is a test center for the SSAT. If you are attending the open house in November and want to take the SSAT on November 10, please register at and indicate Santa Catalina School as the test center. If you are attending the open house in January, please contact the admission office and inquire about the SSAT flex test if there is not an SSAT test center in your area.

Have more questions about the admission process, the independent school experience, or our admission events? We are here to help so please call or email today. We look forward to meeting you!
