Our Program

Set against the scenic backdrop of Monterey, Santa Catalina is an independent, Catholic, boarding and day school for girls in grades 9 through 12 with a diverse student body and strong local roots.

We challenge students to achieve excellence in every arena, from excellent academics — including a marine ecology program that takes advantage of access to Monterey Bay — to competitive athletics in 13 sports to an arts program with professional-quality facilities.

In a warm community that values spirituality and service, Catalina girls become young women prepared to lead and achieve in college and beyond.





At Catalina, each day's schedule is a bit different. Follow some of our students, both boarding and day, to get a feel for a day in the life of our students.
