For Parents

Why not encourage her to lead?

Why not offer her a world where there are no limits to what she can achieve? For more than a century, St. Catherine University has encouraged women to expect more of themselves. When you consider the unique strengths of a women’s college, you’ll understand why our graduates have accomplished so much in the world.

St. Kate’s offers challenging academic programs, a supportive and encouraging environment and a beautiful, secure campus. Our students learn independence, but they never have to go it alone — 100 percent of admitted students rated St. Kate’s as “excellent” or “very good” in personal attention. International students appreciate the tight-knit, friendly campus.

We believe an education like this is one of the most valuable experiences your daughter can have. So, we’ll do everything we can to make a St. Kate’s education affordable for your family.

We’ll help you plan how to finance your daughter’s education by providing information, resources and support. You should know that 90 percent of our first-year students receive financial aid and that we make every effort to sustain a student’s aid award throughout her four years at St. Kate’s. A college education is one of the most important investments she’ll ever make.
