What is global education at Catlin Gabel?

Catlin Gabel's global education initiative seeks to engage and challenge all members of our community to become active global citizens. The school achieves its mission by providing international and cross-cultural opportunities and experiences to students, faculty and families, beginning in the earliest grades. Our aim is to develop students' cultural competence – the necessary cultural, social, and academic skills to effectively address the challenges of the future. We envision our students being global leaders who understand the nuances of global issues, meet needs in appropriate cultural ways, and create positive and sustainable change, both internationally and locally.
