International Students

Catlin Gabel is honored to welcome exchange students to our community each year, to both the upper and middle schools. Our exchange students are carefully selected merit scholars who are ready for Catlin Gabel's academic and linguistic challenges.

We host these young people with the goal of learning as much from them as we can. Our community benefits deeply as our exchange students push us to question assumptions and broaden our perspectives.
