Keep Scrolling

Welcome to Cate!

Charlotte Brownlee ’85

Acting Director of Admission

“There is nothing we love more than sharing Cate School with prospective families, and we hope this website will serve as a good entry point in your exploration. Once you complete the Inquiry form linked below, we will send you the latest news on the School and keep you up to date about admission events throughout the year.

I first encountered Cate as an 8th grader going through the high school search process, although it was quite some time ago! For me the four pillars of Cate’s mission – Commitment, Companionship, Scholarship, and Service – were important factors in my choice of school, and they remain key principles that guide our work today. As you delve into our materials, I hope that you will find many people and programs that resonate with you.

I look forward to getting to know you through your school explorations.
