St. Catherine’s Academy provides an experience unlike any other boarding schools in California. Find out how we are different!
Focused on Junior Boarders (4th – 8th Grade)
As the only California boarding school to accommodate students in 4th – 8th grade, St. Catherine’s has a special focus on the needs of junior boarding students. While attending a boarding school will increase the maturity and responsibility of your son, students in this age group need extra support to live away from home. Our unique boarding program includes 24-hour supervision, daily study hall, and lots of organized activities. In addition, dormitories are staffed by our Dominican Sisters who help fill the role of parent for young resident students.
5-Day Boarding Option
In addition to a typical 7-day boarding program, St. Catherine’s offers a unique 5-day boarding option for families who live within driving distance. As a five-day boarder, you son will benefit from the structure and support of our residential program during the school week while returning home for quality time on weekends.
As an international boarding school in California, St. Catherine’s Academy draws boys from all over the world who come to our school to learn English and experience life in America. Within our close-knit residential community, students develop an understanding for other cultures and learn to relate to one another.
Outings and Activities
California boarding schools provide many opportunities for weekend outings and campus activities to keep students occupied outside of school and study time. As a 7-day resident, your son will enjoy field trips to variety of southern California destinations, including Disneyland, Universal Studios, state beaches and parks, sporting events, and more.
Superior Academic Program
As an all-boys school, St. Catherine’s Academy offers a superior academic program among California boarding schools because we focus on the unique learning needs of boys. Your son will also benefit from our small classes, individualized instruction, and state-of-the-art technology. Boarding students receive additional academic support during daily study hall. Your son will also have a variety of enrichment and extracurricular activities to choose from, including music, athletics, and technology.
