Spiritual

As we come to know Truth in the person of Jesus Christ, we are drawn to the One who is Love itself.  It is that Love that propels us outward in service, but first, it is that love that brings us before the Lord as His Beloved. It is in the intimacy of that encounter that our spiritual lives truly begin.

At St. Catherine of Siena Academy, the spiritual life of each student is directed toward bringing her into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, as a daughter of God the Father through the power of the Holy Spirit.

As the Eucharist is the “source and summit” of our faith, daily Mass is an integral part of our day.  All students are given the opportunity and training to be an integral part of the Mass as lectors and servers.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered on a regular basis, and by appointment.

Visits to the Blessed Sacrament, Morning Prayer as a school, and availability of spiritual direction are all daily opportunities to encounter Christ at St. Catherine’s.

“Beautiful school!”

“I was among one of the very first classes SCA ever had. As a pioneer and a student to be a part of the foundation of clubs and classes that continue today, I am beyond proud of how far the school has come. There were many ups and downs during my four years but an amazing experience overall. Today at college I still look back on and cherish my times at SCA, thankful for the connections, education and sisterhood I acquired. I am looking forward to seeing many more young women carry on the traditions my class and recent classes have set for the future.”

“This high school builds the whole young woman intellectually, spiritually, and teaches the feminine genius approach to life. Amen!”

“Karen Ervin is a remarkable principal! She is a good administrator, but even more importantly, she is an excellent role model for the students. She is strong, confident, and a woman of tremendous virtue. She is unafraid and doing everything in her power to raise strong, Catholic women who will go out and ‘set the world ablaze’!”

SCA Parent

“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.”

“Even if there were 10 stars, I would still put 11!”

“A crazy amount of extra curricular options-basically if you are passionate about it [SCA] will find a way to help you bring it to fruition!”

Leighanne

“This school is not only college prep, it is life prep. I know that my daughter is being educated to go out and make a positive difference in the world. She will graduate with the confidence and courage to lead wherever she goes in life. I love the principal, the teachers, and the families. It is such a blessing to be a part of the SCA Family. I know the friends my daughter has made will be her sisters for life.”

“I loved every minute at St. Catherines! The friends I made there will always be a part of my family. This school taught me how to be a strong, intelligent, independent woman who is strong in her faith. I am blessed to say I got to experience SCA.”

“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.”
