There is a gatehouse as you drive onto Cate School’s driveway. The guard at the bottom of the gate will have the name of all CSO participants and will direct you to the parking lot.
If you are flying first to Southern California, we suggest flying to the Santa Barbara airport (SBA) or the Los Angeles airport (LAX). SBA is a 30 minute drive and LAX is a two hour drive from Cate. If you are accompanying your child to camp, please plan to arrive at Cate between 1:30pm and 3:00pm on the first day of the session and to be on campus by 11:00am on the last day of the session, leaving Cate no later than 1:30pm.
Driver Pick Up Times:
LAX – Flights arriving Monday between 8am and 10am
SBA – Flights arriving Monday between 8am and 12pm
Driver Drop Off Times:
LAX – Flights departing Friday between 2pm and 4pm
SBA – Flights departing Friday between 12pm and 2pm
If your child will be flying as an unaccompanied minor, please notify us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will pick up and drop off campers from the Santa Barbara airport for a fee of $50 ($25 one way) and from LAX in Los Angeles for a fee of $300 ($150 one way). If your child will be flying alone to CSO, please understand the airline’s unaccompanied minor policy. For airport drop off, CSO will help participants check in and walk them to the TSA line, but we will not wait with the participant until the flight departs. Once you have arranged your travel information, please let us know by email (email@example.com).
For those who need assistance with booking travel, we recommend contacting SB Travel for assistance. Cate School has worked closely with Santa Barbara Travel Bureau for many years, and they will be able to help arrange travel for students attending Cate Summer Institute. A ticketing fee of $40 per ticket covers researching the best times and fares and monitoring any subsequent flight schedule changes. Please contact Andrew Seligman at (800)266-5452, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you plan to spend any time locally, please check on the School’s main admission visit page for local hotel information.
