The Monterey Peninsula

When visitors think of the Monterey Peninsula, a range of images may come to mind: the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the world-class golf courses at Pebble Beach, historic Cannery Row, and the breathtaking Pacific Ocean views of Big Little Lies. They may also think of a Mediterranean-like climate, where moderate year-round temperatures stay in the 60s and 70s. We think of Santa Catalina School.

An Ideal Situation

When we think of the Monterey Peninsula, we think of Santa Catalina School. From our beautiful 36-acre campus — with its Spanish-mission style architecture, lush gardens, green playing fields, and an outdoor pool — to a biology program that incorporates marine research, Catalina takes full advantage of its ideal location.

Living Local

Students also take advantage of Santa Catalina’s proximity to downtown Monterey. On Tuesdays, girls trek back to campus with fresh, local produce from the Monterey farmers’ market. We also make a point of contributing to the Monterey community through service: Our students exemplify our dedication to community service by volunteering at soup kitchens, food banks, and the Salvation Army.
