A Well-Rounded Military School

St. Catherine's Academy

Our military tradition promotes a variety of life skills, such as planning, following directions, working on a team, setting goals, and overcoming obstacles. Through this unique program, SCA students become responsible, self-confident young men. They learn to be leaders of honor and integrity through hands-on experience in our peer leadership program.

St. Catherine’s Academy is proud to be more than a traditional military school. Your son will also receive outstanding instruction in the classroom, participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, and grow in his own personal faith, guided by the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose who own and operate SCA.

The SCA Difference

As a Catholic school with a military tradition, St. Catherine’s Academy is a one-of-a-kind military school for boys. We guide students to success through a multi-faceted program that includes:

  • A military tradition that provides structure, teaches self-discipline, and develops leadership qualities
  • Outstanding academics characterized by small classes, individual attention, and boy-centered teaching strategies
  • Faith formation rooted in the Dominican Pillars of community, ministry (service), study, and prayer
  • An overall program focused on younger students.  We serve students in transitional kindergarten - 8th grade.

Why Choose A Military School?

Military schools offer incredible opportunities for students, especially boys. Military schools today are a place for America’s best and brightest students to follow a college-preparatory curriculum while developing the personal qualities needed to become leaders of tomorrow.

Here are just a few reasons why parents choose St. Catherine’s Academy:

  • SCA offers a structured and predictable environment that helps boys learn and grow.
  • Caring military staff act as role models of character, responsibility, and teamwork.
  • Hands-on leadership experience prepares students for an outstanding future in a variety of careers.
  • As a Catholic school with a military tradition, SCA is not a traditional military school. Our dedicated staff, led by the Dominican Sisters, provide a nurturing environment and well-rounded program.
  • Military schools prepare students for high school, college, and life – not for military service.
