Mother Catherine Academy brings Catholic education to children in grades Pre-K through eight through an Independent Catholic School. We offer a challenging curriculum and a broad range of extra curricular opportunities that broaden minds and prepare participants for a fulfilling life rooted in the history and traditions of southern Maryland. The school seeks to help children grow into respected leaders guided by Christian morals.
