There are many advantages in an all-girls education: enhanced leadership opportunities, instruction tailored to girls and the increased confidence and desire to succeed. It's about more than simply separating girls and boys. It’s about a culture and climate - from strong female role models, to girls holding all the leadership positions, to girls-only classroom discussions that truly empower girls to excel.

The faculty at St. Catherine’s are experts in teaching girls. They recognize that girls and boys learn differently, and they’ve done their homework on the latest research about gender differences in brain development that informs their teaching. They know how to challenge and support girls to take the lead in classroom activities and to express themselves decisively and without reservation. 


Bar none, enrolling our two daughters at St. Catherine's has been the best parenting decision we have ever made.
