Now is a transformational moment in the history of Catlin Gabel School that will allow the school and this community to soar today and into the future.
The campaign ensures our tradition of progressive education continues for generations to come—an education where inclusion and kindness matter, where there is a commitment to character-building, integrity, and courage, where teachers have access to the resources they need to provide a personalized approach to learning, and where students from across the city discover their unlimited potential.
We’re excited to share the many ways this campaign will strengthen our school, directly impacting our people, our programs, and our physical campus. Take a few moments to learn about the vision for Catlin Gabel.
This is a place where you have the opportunity to become the best version of yourself as an educator. I can design a curriculum that is based on best practices and research, with the sole goal of maximizing student learning and well-being.
Enrique Escalona, Upper School Spanish Teacher
Education at its best opens minds and touches hearts. That’s the power of Catlin Gabel. That’s the conviction that is driving this campaign. Together, we can transform the life of every student who attends our school.
Tim Bazemore, Head of School
At Catlin, I learned how to create, communicate, and act on my curiosity. With this new facility, there’s nothing holding back the school’s competitive edge.

This campaign is an opportunity to make a significant difference for Catlin Gabel. Just as our own children have benefited from generations of donors before us, we have a responsibility to do the same for future students.
