As one of two military schools for boys in California and the only one dedicated to students in kindergarten – 8th grade, St. Catherine’s Academy is a unique option for parents.
What Makes SCA Special?
As a Catholic school with a military tradition, St. Catherine’s Academy provides a holistic approach to military schools for boys in California. Our program includes:
Spiritual development rooted in the Dominican charism
Small classes, caring faculty, and lessons focused on the learning styles of boys
A unique military program designed to instill leadership, self-discipline, organization, and confidence
A Life Structured for Success
Our military tradition will provide your son with a structured environment that helps boys rise to their fullest potential. During daily “military time,” your son will participate in leadership exercises, group competitions, and basic drill lessons. Our military structure is present throughout the school day. Students walk to class in formation, earn merits and demerits based on behavior, and wear a unique military-style uniform.
St. Catherine’s Academy provides day and boarding programs. Open to boys in 4th – 8th grade, St. Catherine’s boarding environment is especially geared toward boys in this age group by providing more daily support than other military schools for boys in California.
St. Catherine’s Academy has a unique academic program focused on the learning styles of boys. Teachers design lessons that will keep your son engaged by incorporating movement, hands-on activities, and subject matter that is interesting to boys.
Unlike other California military schools for boys, St. Catherine’s Academy is centered in faith. Our school is sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose, who hold positions in administration, teaching, and resident care. In this faith-filled community, students of all faiths are able to grow in their personal spirituality.
