The Catlin Gabel community finds connection both in longstanding school traditions and forward-thinking initiatives, and with a shared interest in supporting our students and their experience. Parents, guardians, grandparents, teachers, and alumni all contribute to the life of the school, and their engagement helps to sustain the best of Catlin Gabel while also moving us forward to meet our students’ changing needs.
Board of Trustees
Volunteers fill all board positions. Trustees are carefully selected based on demonstrated service to the school and clear commitment to Catlin Gabel's goals and philosophies.
Potential trustees are nominated by the committee on trustees and elected by the board. Although some standing and ad hoc board committees are limited to only current board members or special appointees, others include volunteer parents, students, faculty, and alumni in addition to elected trustee members. The elected board of trustees and several ex-officio board members set policy for the school and review the school's implementation of its policies.
