St. Catherine’s Academy (SCA), an all-boys Catholic school with a military tradition in Anaheim, CA has renovated their dormitories for their resident students of the 2016-2017 school year. Over the summer, SCA dorms were revamped with the objective to give dorms a bright and more updated look, thanks to a special grant provided by Shea Family Charities.
All four of St. Catherine’s dormitories (Alpha, Charlie, Delta, and Bravo) went under renovation this past summer and offered a fresh new atmosphere to begin the school year. Dorms received new and improved double–pane windows to limit outside noise and increase energy efficiency. Along with that came new window shades and curtains. Students will also enjoy their refinished painted beds with new bedspreads. The walls were freshly painted with vibrant colors that give brightness to the dorms. The floors were refurbished and new carpeting and furniture was installed as well. The restrooms received a small makeover of their own too. With these new improvements, resident students are sure to enjoy their home away from home.
The dormitory life at SCA offers students the opportunity to learn self-discipline, responsibility and teamwork, while making long lasting friendships. It is available for students in 4th grade to 8th grade, and 5-day and 7-day options are available.
“St. Catherine’s goal is to make sure resident students feel comfortable and secure,” said Sister Johnellen, SCA Administrator/Principal. “We are especially thankful to our sponsor, Shea Family Charities, for their generous donation and to additional supporters who continue to help St. Catherine’s Academy.”
