The campus is beautiful, and I have enjoyed the rigorous learning environment. I feel challenged in a way that helps me learn, not in a way that makes learning difficult. I have made great friends, and having a student body consisting of half boarding students and half day students is a great way to interact with people you normally wouldn't. Sometimes there are events that are scheduled at odd times, for instance right before finals week when everyone wants to study but the school is hosting an event we must participate in, and other times the administration seems a little inflexible in some situations that the students might want changed. Overall though, my experience with Santa Catalina has been pretty good.

Great school, just needs work on keeping up with the times outside of their traditional Catholic values. When everything is easy, the school functions very well. But the second that there is a sticky situation, things get rocky. The teachers are amazing and I wouldn't have done my high school years any other way than at Catalina, but mainly because of the people that I have met there and not because of how the school is actually run.
I like Catalina because they really try to help prepare you for college and real life. There are also lots of extracurricular activities and clubs and events to participate in. The only I would change is their organization and communication. The past year was a little crazy from teachers and faculty members leaving unexpectedly and we weren't told why, and lots of things were disorganized and crazy, which made it a stressful year.
