Catlin Gabel believes socio-economic diversity enriches the educational opportunity for all our students and we are committed to offering a robust need-based financial assistance program. We have among our families those who can afford the full tuition and whose philanthropic generosity provides a vital component of annual operating expenses as well as families who manage to pay tuition only by making substantial sacrifice. In addition, our community is also represented by those who are able to afford only minimal tuition. The school believes that families bear the primary responsibility for financing their child's education; therefore, every Catlin Gabel family is expected to contribute to the cost of tuition, fees and other extracurricular expenses to the extent they are able.
Catlin Gabel families have the option of participating in a Tuition Refund Plan with Dewar Insurance.
