Hi! I’m Avalon from the sprawling suburbs of Orange County, California. After being in the public school system all my life, I made a big jump to join the world of boarding schools last year, and so far I’ve been loving it! Coming from a school where my graduating class was bigger than the entire population of the Mesa, Cate has given me many opportunities to do things I couldn’t do at my local high school. For example, I’ve had the privilege of playing on varsity water polo, pursuing my passion for painting, heading Book Club and having close relationships with upperclassmen. I truly believe that Cate is a place where you can be yourself and no one will judge you. Not to mention, the views and people are amazing. I hope to see you soon!
