Schedule time to take the High School Placement Test. Test dates: NOV 19, DEC 3, JAN 7, FEB 4.
SCA recommends all applicants take the HSPT. SCA will be administering the high school placement test (HSPT) several times throughout the year for all 8th graders (incoming Freshmen) to be used for academic scholarships and general placement decisions.
Acceptance to SCA is based on, but not limited to, the following criteria:
- Be a STAR for a Day! Schedule a shadow day!
- Completed application for admission
In addition, St. Catherine requests applicants take the HSPT placement test to be used for placement into classes as well as academic scholarships.
Once we’ve received your daughter’s completed application, our admissions committee will review her file and then reach out to you with details on how to officially enroll her.
“My family has had an excellent experience at this school so far. Beyond the beautiful new facility, I have been impressed with the teachers and the administration! They challenge the girls both academically and spiritually, they know them by name, and appear to have a genuine concern for each individual student. The school really feels like a family. As a parent, it is a blessing to me to know that my daughter is in such good hands when I drop her off everyday.”
“I have been very impressed with the teachers at this school. They both challenge the girls academically and show true concern for them on a personal level as well.”
“This high school builds the whole young woman intellectually, spiritually, and teaches the feminine genius approach to life. Amen!”
“SCA is authentically and unapologetically Catholic. It’s excellence in academics and athletics is rooted in its mission to pass on the beauty of the Catholic faith in a way that is relevant to the modern world. The result is a constant focus on the character and virtue of its students, challenging them to be the best version of themselves not just academically, but spiritually as well.”
“[Teachers] care about the success of each student. They come early to help students and stay after school if necessary. They are a super dedicated faculty.”
“Another thing I enjoyed about the school was the athletics. I played four different sports at this school and I had the same experience with all of them. The coaches really cared about me, not just how well I was performing and I was treated respectfully on and off the court. Further more, I felt that I was really being pushed physically and mentally during practice which I value in any activity.”
“As a graduate of this school, I can attest to not only the strong education I received from SCA but also the strong foundation I was given in which I could build my own faith upon. I felt fully prepared for the ‘real world’ both academically and spiritually.”
“I LOVE this school. The teachers are excellent. Because the students are so friendly, it’s easy to fit in and make friends even if you have had a tough time at other schools. There is virtually no bullying and it is a very friendly, positive environment. Highly recommended.”
“The community service, the focus on virtuous living, and the sisterhood really instills compassion and respect for all of humanity.”
“The school lives up to their mission statement by unlocking the feminine genius in the girls who go there and providing us with the opportunity to discover who we are meant to be.”
