An independent, co-educational day school inspiring inquisitive, creative thinkers in preschool to 12th grade through dedicated teachers & small classes.
Catlin Gabel has been at the vanguard of teaching what matters since the school's earliest days. What we do comes down to small class sizes and the relationships students have with their teachers. No one gets lost in the crowd. As we like to say, there is no back row. Our teachers make a point of knowing about each students learning style, homework assignments, classroom projects, volunteer activities, achievements, and disappointments. Nobody sits alone, works in a vacuum, or goes unrecognized.
We look for students who are eager to learn, who will contribute to our community, and who will take advantage of all we have to offer. We offer placement to young people who want to be part of a creative and vibrant academic, social, and athletic community. We also seek diversity among our students. Every class is made up of a mix of introverts, extroverts, talkers, listeners, boys, girls, scientists, artists, athletes, and mathematicians. We honor ethnic, racial, and economic diversity as well as different learning and social styles.
