the Bridge

About ‘the Bridge’ – an annual appeal to support St. Catherine of Siena Academy. 

In honor of our patron, St. Catherine of Siena, we are initiating a giving campaign, the Bridge. In addition to tuition, we rely on the generosity and charitable giving of our friends and supporters to help us bridge the gap between the tuition revenue and the cost of educating our STARS. This annual campaign of giving begins on the Feast Day of St. Catherine and is an opportunity for you to direct your gift to an area of your choice.

the Bridge

The Bridge is a reference taken from the third Chapter in the Dialogue. In it, God enlightens Catherine (by means of analogy) that the way to salvation is Jesus Christ. He is “the Bridge” who, “stretches from heaven to earth” connecting us to the Father and his everlasting love. Using the imagery of “Jesus as the Bridge” to our salvation, we continue to teach our STARS that they must be active participants in their faith life by walking, ever forward, on that bridge.

Give today, forming mind and hearts to walk across the Bridge!

Dear Friend and Supporter of St. Catherine,

As we draw near the end of our 10 year anniversary, we are grateful for all that God has provided in these most unusual times. The patience, understanding, and love of our faculty, staff, and STARS have allowed us to continue our mission at St. Catherine of Siena Academy. Despite current circumstances, our instruction has not stopped, but rather flourished! Our STARS are in the midst of their sixth week of online learning and our shining seniors are on track to graduate as planned!

In the last few months, we have been challenged in very real, concrete ways. Most of us have been isolated from loved ones and experienced loss and general uneasiness as we navigate an uncertain path forward. Yet in this time of separation, we have heard the call anew to continue our walk on the Bridge. We have become deeply aware that we are all connected on this journey. As we pray together as a community and serve each other in the ways we are gifted, we continue to lift each other up and teach our STARS to turn toward Christ in every circumstance.

In every circumstance, your investment in St. Catherine is important to us! We need your support to finish the year strong. If you are able, please consider sharing your financial blessings with our community by making a one-time or recurring gift to St. Catherine of Siena Academy. Recurring gifts help us plan for the future of our STARS. With your generosity, we can continue to instill in our students, like St. Catherine, a passion for the Truth and compassion for humanity, as we stretch both the mind and heart of each young woman who walks through our doors.

St. Catherine of Siena, pray for us!

President of St. Catherine of Siena Academy

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


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


“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.”

SCA Parent

“[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.”

SCA Parent

“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 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.”

SCA Parent

“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.”


“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.”


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