Teachers here wear many hats.


At Cate you will have a faculty advisor — a sort of guide to school and a counselor. You will meet with your advisory group (usually six students) once a week, to chat over bagels or a special snack. You sit with your advisory during assembly and see each other informally each day on campus. But your advisor plays a lot of roles. They will keep track of your academic performance and your general well-being. They open their homes to you, will cheer you up if you’re homesick, celebrate a team victory, and step in whenever you need advice or guidance. They will also keep in contact with your parents throughout the year to make sure they are up-to-date on your life at Cate.
