Each student who comes through Santa Catalina brings her talents, ambitions, and goals. During her time here, she will come to know herself and the kind of future she wants to build. Our comprehensive advisory program, Journey, will guide her in this self-discovery process, and individual college counseling sessions will ensure that she submits the strongest application possible to the schools of her choice.

Our college counseling team works closely with each student and her family. Our goal is to help each young woman find the right program that is the best academic, extracurricular, and personal fit for her. College counseling involves knowing our students well and working together to provide each student with college options that will best match her interests, needs, and goals.

At Santa Catalina, we want each of our graduates to go on to achieve great personal and professional success, and that begins with making the best college choice. Santa Catalina's strong academic program and the success of our past graduates enable students to choose from a wide range of selective and highly selective colleges and universities.

Individual college planning meetings begin in the junior year and continue through the senior-year application process, along with weekly college meetings with the senior class. Representatives from national and international colleges and universities visit Santa Catalina each year to make presentations to interested students. We want each student to be well informed throughout her individual college admission process in order to make the important decision about where to spend her next four years.

We work to equip each student with the tools needed to succeed in college and in her future career. By graduation day, each student is focused and well prepared for the next chapter of her life.
