Cate School

P.O. Box 5005
Carpinteria, California, USA Show Phone Number   

In 1910, Curtis Cate founded what is now Cate School. Forty years later he spoke to his final graduating class: "Part of the spirit of this place goes with us. We shall again aspire, again attain, in the world that lies beyond these horizons." Today's Cate School is a testament to that very spirit and to the commitment to service, scholarship, and character which continues to underlie all of our aspirations.

Dunn School

P.O. Box 98

In the Dunn community, we understand that every single student arrives with certain talents and gifts. These gifts may be immediately apparent in the classroom or on the athletic field, or they may be as yet undiscovered potential, waiting to be realized in an art or music room, on top of a mountain,...

Calculus too. Midland is a fully accredited, all-boarding, co-educational college preparatory school, and a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. As other schools get larger and...
