Meet St. Catharine College

Outstanding education in the proud Dominican tradition

If you’re looking for a college where you’ll feel at home right away, a place where you will get to know your professors well and grow through one-on-one attention, excellent instruction and an opportunity to dive into out-of-class learning opportunities, look no further than St. Catharine College in Kentucky. You’ve found your college home.

It’s a great time to be on our campus. Generous donations from our alumni and friends have allowed us to expand our program offerings, staff, facilities and equipment to more fully meet the needs of our students. Currently, the centerpiece of our new academic facilities is the Richard S. Hamilton Health and Science Building that features state-of-the-art medical laboratories; new chemistry, biology and physics labs; an auditorium; classrooms; computer labs and conference spaces. Plans are also underway  to expand these facilities even further and to add a new library, more residence halls and on-campus student apartments (up to a total of seven facilities for student on-campus living), new athletic fields, a student center and an ecology center.

Our campus is fully committed to delivering career-focused education grounded firmly in a proud liberal arts tradition. When you graduate from St. Catharine College, you’ll be well equipped to pursue the career of your choice, well rounded as a person and a devoted lifelong learner. We are especially proud of our over 98 percent placement rate for our health science graduates. Our education program also boasts a high placement rate and is known statewide for the excellence of the teachers we graduate each year. St. Catharine College’s education program is the first completely field-based education program in the state of Kentucky.

Finally, no discussion of St. Catharine College would be complete without highlighting our Catholic roots and proud allegiance to the Dominican tradition in which we were founded.  The high values and faith traditions of the Sisters who first envisioned this distinguished institution live on in everything we do.
