Admissions Process
Our admissions process begins by building a relationship with your family and is designed to help us get to know each girl personally. Our goal is to make the application process as streamlined as possible. The Admissions Team is here to guide you through every step of the way with personalized attention, and we look forward to working with your family!

Admissions decisions are based upon entrance testing, previous and current school records, personal interviews, and availability of openings. As a convenience to our applicant families, we utilize an electronic notification and enrollment process.

We thrive on relationships and love meeting prospective students and families in person, but the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for physical distancing requires us to approach the admissions process differently this year.  While St. Catherine's is open with on-campus teaching and learning, the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is paramount. We are excited to share the school with prospective families and will be able to host visitors on campus on a limited basis. We will offer abbreviated campus previews and virtual info sessions for all grade levels. 

We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2022. While the application process will be different than it has been in the past, now is the perfect time to submit an application.
