    I graduated almost 20 years ago and cannot be more grateful for my experiences at St. Catherine’s. The small classroom sizes and all-girls environment gave me the opportunity to shine as a relatively shy young girl, and develop into a strong leader. The rigorous academics prepared me to develop strong study skills that allowed me to do very well throughout college and graduate school. St.Catherine’s focus on honor and community has helped me focus on the truly important parts of life and being a responsible member of our society. I am truly thankful for my experiences at St. Catherine’s!

    My daughter is in High School and has attended St. Catherine's School since lower school. She has had an outstanding experience with academics, the arts and has been very happy socially. She has enjoyed the close relationships with faculty and the small class size. It has been the perfect combination of a single sex education with a coordinate program with St. Christopher's School. My daughter has more leadership opportunities and has found her happy place at St. Catherine's School!
    My daughter loves going to school every day! Need I say more? She feels cared for, validated, heard and respected by her peers and teachers. She is a junior in the process of looking at colleges and it’s so hard to find a place she likes because she just wants a place as beautiful, excellent and with as good a menu and dining hall as St. Catherine’s and it’s very hard to find! She is only a junior but feels more than prepared for college and already dreads leaving her beloved school. The athletics, academics and the arts are all top notch. It’s the best place on earth.
