College Counseling

Our counselors have worked diligently over the years to combine all the resources required to help STARS make a smooth transition from SCA to the colleges of their choice.

Due to the unusual college admissions circumstances created by COVID-19, the Michigan College Access Network has create a compilation of Michigan colleges and universities and what they are requiring from applicants this year. We will update the link as new versions become available.

Click the button below for a list of colleges fall plans (in-person or virtual), standardized test requirements, application fee waivers (many are free), essay requirements, and tour modes (in-person or virtual).

The Counselors have recently met with all STARS in the class of 2021 about college admissions. If you have a senior STAR, please ask to see her purple folder. In it you will find THIS LETTER covering what is needed for a college application, how many colleges to apply to, how to apply, essays/personal statements, admissions scores, college costs, and more.

“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.”

Alumna

“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.”

Alumna, Class of '17

“An excellent school that brings the girls together more like sisters rather than friends.”

Zina

“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.”

Alumna, Class of '14

“The community service, the focus on virtuous living, and the sisterhood really instills compassion and respect for all of humanity.”

SCA Parent

“An excellent community for families that want to stay involved! Everyone has a different opinion and all students, staff, and faculty are respectful of it. I have never been in an environment that was so inviting and welcoming. It is easy to find a home in this school because the staff genuinely care about you and want you to succeed. It really is a beautiful place and a great experience. I am very lucky to have gone through high school there.”

You receive a spiritual hug when you walk through the door at St. Catherine of Siena Academy. Christ is at the center and He is opening up His arms saying “these are your friends, this is your family.” – Erika, SCA Alumnae

Erika

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

Chrissy

“SCA proves you can educate young women to both get into Heaven and Harvard!”

SCA Parent

“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.”
