Boarding students are living the Catalina life 24/7. Get the inside scoop on life as a boarding student straight from the source: our boarding student blog, Boarders Without Borders.
Live your best life. Truly.
Produce a podcast. Try paddleboarding. Go a little crazy during the Spirit Week scavenger hunt. There’s more to do than you can possibly fit in a day (or a week, or a month). Catalina students still find time to lend a hand in their community, however, from helping out at the Monterey Food Bank to spending time with local seniors.
The Catalina sisterhood runs deep. You'll take part in traditions that will turn into memories you'll never forget – traditions like senior rafting trip, Ring Week, and Big Sister/Little Sister.
When you're not in class or deep into clubs and activities, you can explore all that this amazing area has to offer. From the art galleries and fantastic eateries in Carmel to the beaches and forests of Big Sur, we make the most of it.
I chose to come to Santa Catalina because it is such a well-rounded school. Not only does Catalina have challenging academics, successful sports, and an amazing theater program, but there are long-lasting traditions that build a tight-knit community.
