When applicants spend time on campus, it’s an opportunity for them to learn more about Catlin Gabel and for our teachers and staff to get to know them.

A Catlin Gabel admission account is required for all applicants. If you already have an account, you can register for a student visit in the admission portal. To create an admission portal account, please complete our inquiry form.

Beginning & Lower School Student Visit Days

Students applying to the Beginning and Lower School will have an opportunity to visit campus on a ‘visit day’ after the application has been submitted. These required visit days allow the community and student to get to know each other, and for the student to explore the campus and meet some teachers. More information about these visit days is located in the admission portal.
