Catlin Gabel has always been the preeminent progressive school in Oregon. But it’s about more than academics. It’s about empowering students to think for themselves, to be curious about the world in which they live. To help them to speak up and speak out. To advocate—for others and for their own learning—with a curiosity and empathy that's tirelessly inspired and fostered by our teachers. In doing so they become scholars of life and for life.
