Changing the Lives of Boys for Nearly 130 Years

Changing the Lives of Boys for Nearly 130 Years

It’s that time of the year again. Summer has come to an end and St. Catherine’s Academy welcomed students from far and near to its 2018-2019 school year. The Anaheim based all-boys Catholic school with a military tradition has been educating young men to become leaders for nearly 130 years. Its unique boarding program is home to international students and surrounding cities across Southern California. 

St. Catherine’s Academy (SCA) has been educating boys in Transitional Kindergarten through 8th grade since 1889 by the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose and their lay partners.  SCA is known for its exceptionally unique Catholic- Military tradition platform which makes for the only school in the United States of its type. There is no other school for young learners that can provide Catholic values with a robust education and the benefits of structure and discipline that its military program has to offer.

“St. Catherine’s Academy provides the spiritual foundation centered around the four Dominican Pillars: Community, Ministry, Study and Prayer,” said Sister Johnellen Turner, OP, Administrator/Principal.  “Along with a Catholic education, our students are able to excel in their academics because of the small classes, which provide the attention each student needs to succeed. We educate the whole child, and we are excited to reach a huge milestone soon of educating young men for 130 years.”

St. Catherine’s Academy is a second home to many students as it offers a boarding program which attracts students from other parts of the world as well as students that may need more structure in their daily routine.  Boarding options are offered to students in 4th to 8th grade with the choice of either a 5-day or 7-day program. St. Catherine’s also serves a traditional day school with students from surrounding cities.
