Private Schools Orange County

Want the best for your son?

So do we!  As the oldest private school in Orange County, St. Catherine’s Academy has been educating boys for lifelong success since 1889.

Academics Focused on Boys

Despite a plethora of private schools in Orange County, St. Catherine’s Academy is the only all-boys school for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.  Because of our all-boys program, St. Catherine’s is uniquely qualified to focus on the specific learning needs of your son.  Our teachers understand that boys learn differently from girls, especially in the early stages of education.  Guided by research-based best practices, our teachers create lessons that will help your son actively experience knowledge, including hands-on activities, movement, and field trips.

Individual Attention & Caring Faculty

With a faculty-to-student ratio of 8:1, your son will benefit from individual attention.  Our caring faculty extends every effort to ensure that each student is meeting his potential.  As our partners in your son’s education, you can expect excellent communication with teachers and administration.

Stellar Academics: The Core Subjects & Beyond!

St. Catherine’s academic program exceeds California state standards in all core subjects while also offering a variety of enrichment classes and extracurricular activities.  Your son will enjoy enrichment classes in technology, music, laboratory science, physical education, Spanish, and art.  If you choose, your son can also participate in extracurricular activities like sports, peer leadership, piano, guitar, and competitive drill team.  In addition, St. Catherine’s is the only K-8 academy to offer marching band among Orange County private schools.

Beautiful 8-Acre Campus

St. Catherine’s Academy enjoys a pristine 8-acre campus populated by century-old palm trees and historic buildings.  You son will have a ball with our superior athletic facilities, which include an indoor pool, gymnasium, athletic field, and obstacle course. Academic facilities include a fully-equipped computer lab, science lab, and music rooms.  In addition, each classroom has an interactive Smartboard for optimum student engagement.

A Catholic School with a Military Tradition

St. Catherine’s unique format as an independent Catholic school with a military tradition sets us apart from other Orange County private schools.  Our unique program is essential to developing the whole child.  As a Catholic school, we encourage each child, regardless of his faith, to grow in his spirituality and relationship with God.  Our military tradition offers a unique approach to leadership and character development while creating a structured environment that motivates boys to be their best.

St. Catherine’s Academy is so unique among Orange County private schools that you have to see us for yourself!
