Tours and Interviews
We can’t wait to meet you and introduce you to all things Catalina! To get to know each other better, a campus tour and interview are required components of the application process. Each applicant should schedule a tour of campus and an applicant interview, which will be conducted virtually via Zoom or Skype.
Virtual student tour
Get the true Catalina experience by taking a virtual tour of campus with one of our student ambassadors. The tour is personalized and includes applicants and their parents. This is a required part of the application process and should be scheduled before the interview.
The virtual interview includes applicants and their parents. It is a great time to have your questions answered and for us to get to know you better. At the end of the interview, there will be a 15-minute writing sample conducted within the Zoom platform.
On-campus tour (optional)
If you are coming to Monterey or live locally and want to see the campus in person, contact us to schedule a tour! In-person tours are conducted on Mondays and Fridays and require scheduling three business days in advance. Tours are no more than one hour and follow our county safety protocols, which will be communicated to you in an email prior to visiting campus. Available times are 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. and are dependent upon space availability. We are permitted to accommodate one family per time slot. The in-person tour is not a required element of the application and is not a substitute for the required virtual student tour or interview with admission representatives.
Virtual tours and interviews are available at a variety of times. The tour and interview are each one hour long and are scheduled separately. Call or email your admission representative to schedule a time that works best for you. Please schedule appointments a week in advance. (Note: It is not a requirement to submit an application prior to touring or interviewing.)
