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 process as streamlined as possible while gathering the required information. The Admissions Team is here to guide you through every step of the way with personalized attention. 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 know that the COVID-19 pandemic is serious and disrupting everyday life as we all know it.  We thrive on relationships and love meeting prospective students and families in person. St. Catherine's students and teachers have transitioned to distance learning and our staff is working remotely while our campus is physically closed. Since we can't meet in person, we are committed to meeting you virtually and assure you that we are here to partner with you to complete the application process. 

We do still have a limited number of spaces for the 2020-2021 school year and you can read about the process for applying to each grade below.

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 our physical campus is closed and our students and teachers have transitioned to distance learning and teaching. The Admissions Team is working remotely and can't wait to share the School with you in other ways.
