Student Visits

The student visit is an important step in the admission process for both the applicant and Catlin Gabel. Student visits vary by division but all applicants will spend time interacting with teachers and leave with a deeper understanding of Catlin Gabel’s culture.

Beginning & Lower School

All applicants to preschool & kindergarten who have completed the application for admission by the final deadline will be invited to participate in a student visit. Selected applicants to grades 1-5 who have completed the application for admission by the deadline will be invited to participate in a student visit.

During the visit your child will join other applicants in the classroom for a variety of activities. Visits are an opportunity for teachers to get to know each applicant through observation and interaction.

Student visits are required for all applicants who are invited to participate.
