Admissions Welcome Page

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.


In light of COVID-19, the admissions process and recruitment events may be different for the Class of 2025. SCA will review your daughter’s record holistically and also review the Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools (TACHS) and the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade school reports. St. Catharine Academy fully supports the pedagogical (instructional) and administrative decisions your daughter’s school has made or will make in order to assist her learning through this crisis. 


Please take a look at our viewbook below to learn more about St. Catharine Academy.  I also encourage you to complete the Learn about SCA form to keep abreast on all of the upcoming events for prospective students and families in the fall.
