Who We Are

Who We Are

Located in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Northeast Seattle, St. Catherine School is a family, Christ-centered community, rooted in the Catholic faith and inspired by the Gospel values. With Jesus as our model, we are dedicated to lifelong growth in faith, love and learning. 

We are committed to developing responsible, ethical leaders who think critically, act justly, communicate effectively and serve willingly.

St. Catherine School opened in 1941, just months before the United States entered World War II. Despite the trauma of the times, St. Catherine School found a firm foothold among Catholic families in Seattle’s north end. Sisters of Providence staffed the school for thirty-five years.


In 2018 we received a full six-year term of accreditation by the Western Catholic Education Association.
