Q&A Drop-In Sessions: Beginning & Lower School

Beginning in September, the Director of Beginning & Lower School enrollment will offer regular, informal Zooms for small groups of interested families who want to learn more about Catlin Gabel. Rather than a formal presentation, this is a time to ask any questions you may have.

After a 3-year, pandemic-induced hiatus the Elana Gold '93 Environmental Restoration Project (EGP) will return in July 2023 for its 28th iteration.

More information on the project can be obtained on the Catlin website or by contacting Bob Sauer (
