1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
The campus is located a few miles from the Pacific Ocean on a master with a spectacular view. The sports facilities and fields are excellent. The arts program is very good, including photography.

Can you provide me with a first class-education and instilled a love of learning and sense of curiosity. I also made good friends there. I feel fortunate to have been able to attend.

1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
We had a great interaction with our teachers, who were very enthusiastic and interested in having deep discussions about their fields of study. The school stresses writing skills, which have served me well in my career. The class sizes are small. It is not a competitive environment but rather one in which the students often work together on projects
1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
Athletics are mandatory, and there are many options, including soccer, basketball, football, surfing, and baseball. The school has a relatively new gym to complement its older beautiful wooden gym which was a bit small. Key is part of the "Condor League", which consists of small boarding schools in the general area.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Cate is in a small coastal town called Carpenteria, which is just south of Montecito in Santa Barbara. You're a great beaches and surfing spots in the area.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
You make friends for life at Cate, and there's always some activity going on to entertain you.
