Come and see for yourself.


Our campus visit is designed to show you what distinguishes Cate, both in and out of the classroom. We want you to experience many different facets of life on the Mesa. You’ll be able to sit in on a class, attend an all-school assembly or Tuesday Talk, tour the campus with a current student, and interview with an Admission Committee member.
