Alumnae Association

We are an intergenerational community of women striving to grow spiritually, creatively, and intellectually. We foster individuality and fortitude while sustaining and extending the Santa Catalina experience through gifts of time, energy, and financial resources.


Once you're part of the Catalina family, you're part of it for life. Before they graduate, seniors are automatically inducted into the Alumnae Association. In this video, Director of Alumnae/i Engagement Shannon Gaughf Dillon '08 talks about all of the benefits and opportunities that come from being part of this incredible network of nearly 5,000 alumnae worldwide.

Alumnae are part of our heritage and help shape Santa Catalina’s reputation. The purpose of the Alumnae Association is to engage in activities which:

  1. Sustain the vigorous and productive programs that encourage alumnae to become interested and involved in the Association and the ongoing development of Santa Catalina
  2. Provide financial and in-kind contributions that help assure Santa Catalina’s continued ability to provide a high-quality educational experience to students; and
  3. Promote meaningful and constructive communication among and between all Santa Catalina constituents, including students, faculty, administration, board of trustees, and alumnae.

The Alumnae Council of Directors is the active leadership body of the Alumnae Association, representing alumnae from each decade since 1950. The council consists of an Executive Committee and members. The Alumnae Council meets two times a year.

In addition, there are Chapter Chairs who are not required to serve on the Alumnae Council. The Chapter Chairs are instrumental in reaching out to our alumnae in 15 national cities and three international regions and in keeping our alumnae engaged with the school and with one another.
