St. Catherine's Academy has an international boarding program which is open to students in 4th - 8th grade. Since 1936, we have welcomed international students to study English and experience life in America.
Founded in 1889, SCA is the first Catholic school in Orange County. The Dominican Pillars of community, ministry, study, and prayer are our foundation and just one feature that makes us a truly unique private school in Orange County.
SCA offers the values of a military school in a program designed for younger students. In our elementary military school program, students learn structure and self-discipline. As the oldest cadets on campus, our 6th – 8th graders get more leadership experience than their peers at other military middle schools.
SCA is a leader among junior boarding schools with 24-hour supervision, structured activities, and a home-like environment. We are one of the few elementary boarding schools to begin accepting students in 4th grade and also offer middle school boarding school.
SCA is one of the top boarding schools in the US, offering on-campus housing, specialized instruction for English Language Learners, and more. We accept international boarding students in 4th - 8th grade.
