They will be able to engage in mini-classes, and visit the facilities, play areas, labs, theaters, gym, and arts buildings.
Families will hear about the school’s programs from the people who know it best -- faculty, students, parents, and alumni. It’s chance for families to discover how academic excellence, leadership opportunities, and a vibrant community combine to form the Catlin Gabel experience.Most important, it is a chance for parents to ask their own questions and create a dialog with the school. This is the heart of Catlin Gabel’s hands-on approach to education.
