Admissions Calendar

The best way to learn about St. Catherine's in a typical year is to come to campus to tour our classrooms, see our students and meet our teachers.  St. Catherine's is preparing to open for on-campus learning for Fall 2020 and visitors are not permitted on campus to protect the health and safety of our students and employees.  The Admissions Team is working remotely and we encourage you to reach out as we are eager to share more about our girl-centered offerings. Our Admissions team stands ready to give you personalized attention every step of the way.  We are currently taking applications for Fall 2021.

    Know an amazing girl? She belongs at St. Catherine's. Apply today or text us at 804-281-7140 to get started.

    Let's Get Started

    The best way to get started is to come to St. Catherine’s for a campus tour, catch a glimpse of School life, meet our teachers and see teaching and learning up close. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are unable to have visitors on campus.  The Admissions Team is working remotely and can't wait to share the School with you in other ways.
