The Arts: An Academic Approach

At Catlin Gabel we promote lifelong participation in the arts.  From our Beginning School's woodworking program through our Upper School's award-winning Chamber Choir, students develop the discipline and skills required for creative work through active participation in the creative process. The arts program provides a rich variety of avenues for expression and achievement in both the visual and performing arts.
