Campaign for Arts & Minds

Thank you for joining us for Campaign for Arts & Minds Celebration on September 17. 

In 2009, Catlin Gabel kicked off the Campaign for Arts and Minds composed of two goals: increasing the school's endowment and building a new creative arts center for the Middle and Upper Schools.


A healthy endowment helps Catlin Gabel maintain its national reputation for outstanding programs, and ensure its long-term security. Here are some examples of what the endowment helps fund.

  • Competitive faculty compensation and benefits
  • Multi-year financial aid awards that support students until they graduate
  • Broad program offerings for a holistic student experience

Creative Arts Center

The new Creative Arts Center opened for students in September 2013, and the funding is complete! Community support and a deep belief in the arts made possible this incredible building designed by nationally renowned architect Brad Cloepfil and his team at Allied Works. To schedule a tour of this beautiful facility, please contact Miranda Wellman at
