Western Boarding Schools
- There are 44 college-prep and junior boarding schools located throughout Western.
School is located in a historical 17-acre park like campus complete with cafeteria, library, and dormitory facilities.
Our beautiful 59-acre campus provides the perfect setting for open minds to inquire, explore, and grow in order to succeed in an ever-changing global community.
Outdoor Education: Afternoon surfing, day hikes, weekend camping trips, and an 11-day wilderness trek introduce students to the wilderness environment while emphasizing the development of a positive attitude toward challenging situations.
Our oceanfront campus is a major draw. Located in sunny San Diego, California, our school offers private beach access. We're the only military school in the country with a surf team! There's nothing like relaxing at the beach after a long day of classes.
LCHS students perform a melodrama 'Trial by Error' while the audience enjoys pie and ice cream with the show.
Our location allows students to enjoy a wide range of mountain activities that span four seasons. Students participate in alpine, cross-country, and backcountry skiing, hiking, whitewater kayaking, mountain biking, fly-fishing, figure skating, hockey, and more.
'Education is not merely the making of scholars. It is the making of men and women. It is the training of the younger generation in the art of living for their own greatest good and the greatest good of their fellow citizens.' -Sherman Day Thacher
St. Catherine's recognizes the important role that athletics plays in the development of a well-rounded young man. Our physical education program and championship athletic teams seek to develop skills and capabilities that reach far beyond the athletic field.
With 165 students, relationships are at the core of the CRMS experience. This close-knit community resides on a 320-acre historic ranch, at the confluence of two rivers and base of Mount Sopris, providing not only an outdoor learning laboratory but a launch point for boundless outdoor adventure.
Art class in our beautiful atelier. Visual arts courses include film, photography, painting, drawing, ceramics, printing, and more. Students benefit from field trips to local art galleries and museums in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.
