Thank you for visiting St. Catharine Academy’s admissions page! St. Catharine Academy is an all-girl college prep high school founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1889.


SCA’s curriculum prepares our students for college and successful careers. Most subject areas offer courses at the Regents, Academic Honors, or Advanced Placement levels to meet the needs, interest, and abilities of every student.


Besides having a rigorous academic program, we also offer a rich array of clubs, student’s organizations and a great athletic program. Our athletic teams include, cheerleading, dance, softball, basketball and volleyball. All of our sports teams are part of CHSAA within the Archdiocese of New York.


Admission to SCA is based on the Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools (TACHS) and the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade school reports. We review attendance, punctuality and behavior records when considering acceptance. Our TACHS ID # 215.
