In September 2020, we opened the school, offering On-Campus and Remote options for our students.  Depending upon the mandates given by local and state authorities, we are prepared to adjust our programs, if needed.  To ensure the safety of our community, the Admission process will primarily be conducted remotely. The Admission Office is available through email and phone conversations to help families learn more about Catherine Cook School and to assist in the admission process. Both in-person and virtual tours are now available.

Fortunately, we have a number of online resources to guide you through the admission application process and some of our most frequently asked questions. Please use the table below to access our online resources:

A Letter from Director of Admission Jill Due

Catherine Cook is a place where joy and hard work meet to form an engaging learning environment that inspires curiosity, innovation, and personal growth. We inspire personal excellence and compassionate leadership with our focus on challenging academics, character education, and social/emotional development during a child’s most formative years.

Our progressive program promotes constructive learning and design thinking in a state-of-the-art facility that includes an AV Studio and an IDEA Lab (Innovation, Design, Engineering, and Art). Our whole-child approach ensures that students are prepared for future success by learning how to collaboratively solve problems, make decisions, and communicate with others in an effective and respectful manner.

Catherine Cook students develop into caring, confident, and well-rounded young people during their time in school. We are a multifaceted community of lifelong learners in which students, faculty, and parents develop deep connections and a confident sense of global citizenship for an ever-changing world.
