Faculty Professional Development
Each academic year our faculty and staff are afforded myriad professional development opportunities. Some of the workshops attended recently include: Data Science Course through Coursera and Johns Hopkins University, the iTeach technology conference, that Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, the "School of Lost Borders" summer program, and the Bay Area Teacher Development Collective "Classroom Cultures of Thinking." Such advanced training translates into new and creative approaches to teaching that benefit each student.
Our students have their choice of 12 different interscholastic sports. Our young women excel on the courts, the fields, and in the pool, regularly winning league championships. Sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline, personal bests, and a positive attitude are what Catalina sports are all about.
The foundation of a Santa Catalina education is our commitment to excellence, and the cornerstone is our exceptional academic curriculum. With more than 95 courses offered (including 7 Advanced Topics and 11 AP courses) and an average class size of 12 students, our girls are allowed to discover their academic potential and foster their individual talents.
