The College Search Process is a Journey
At St. Catherine's, our dedicated team of College Counselors support the girls and their parents throughout the entire college search process. Our highly-customized program begins in the ninth grade and builds over time with specific grade level activities, one-on-one meetings, family meetings, test prep, workshops, college trips and much more. A detailed "College Counseling Field Guide" is shared with each student to help them navigate the four-year process and online resources provide additional support, such as the password-protected, web-based Naviance platform customized for St. Catherine's. In addition, more than 100 colleges send their admissions representatives to our campus to seek out our students. Our scholar athletes are recruited by Division I and III schools, and our aspiring artists submit portfolio reviews and audition for highly coveted placements in top art schools. Our ultimate goal is to help each girl to find a college or university where she will thrive.
Well Prepared for Life
In addition to providing rigorous academics and dynamic extracurricular activities, we help each girl to develop her self-awareness, self-advocacy skills and a sense of empowerment to direct her own life. The mastery of these skills paves the way for greater success in college and beyond. Our girls are well prepared for higher education and are admitted to many highly-selective colleges and universities. Our graduates attend Ivy League schools, large state universities, small liberal arts colleges, women’s institutions, art colleges and everything in between.
