Cate School hosts a series of Fall College Nights, where we welcome college representatives for a lively college fair in a relaxed setting. College Night is a wonderful opportunity for underclass students to learn about your school and for you to make connections with our senior applicants.

The dates for Fall 2016 College Nights are Mondays: September 19, 26, and October 3. Refreshments with the college counseling team (and an optional student-led tour) begin at 4:00 p.m., and then the event for students runs from 4:45 to 6:00 p.m.
Daytime visits are also welcome, but appointment times during the academic day can be limited.

To check availability for a College Night or a daytime visit, please contact College Counseling Office Manager Amy Giles at amy_giles@cate.org or 805-684-4127 ext. 296.
