Every summer, St. Catherine's Brilliant Summer Program provides boys and girls age 3 through rising grade 10 with countless opportunities for creative pursuits, academic enrichment, sports camps and much more. Kids love our inspirational teachers and supportive counselors, and they can't wait to design their day. Parents love it for the top-quality offerings all summer long, the affordable prices and most of all, the smiles on their children's faces at the end of the day.

Summer 2018 promises to be epic as St. Catherine's celebrates 40 years of summer fun and learning. New innovative offerings are in the works. Stay tuned for more information!
