Upcoming Stories

There’s always something happening at CATC, from the rich stories of individual urban teens finding new hope and opportunity, to our twice-annual themed student art shows, or the excitement of seniors creating their futures through Bridging the Gap. Here are some ideas for stories. For appointments or interviews: Gail Silver at gms530@msn.com or 513.475.0002

Students return to CATC — and more opportunities than ever

CATC is welcoming students for fall semester and the start of the 2014 – 2015 school year. We always start a couple of weeks after the schools, which gives our students time to settle into their regular high school classes and for us to visit the schools to tell students about the opportunities awaiting them at CATC. And when it comes to opportunities, the new school year brings more than ever:

Beyond our arts-based program that last year helped achieve a 97% graduation rate–our best yet–and year over year an average 93% graduation rate.
Beyond our workforce development program that every year prepares dozens of CATC graduates  for careers in fields where area employers desperately need skilled workers, like health care and manufacturing.

Beyond all that, watch for:

  • CATC students’ participation in UN International Day of the Girl Child at the Freedom Center, October 11. Buy tickets here– http://freedomcenter.org/content/dining-women. Limited seating!
  • We have talented new people joining CATC to help make our arts and workforce development programs more successful than ever.
  • We’ll be announcing new experiences opportunities for CATC students through affiliations with some of our area’s best-known arts organizations.
  • And we’re introducing an outdoor-experiences program that applies the learning we gained, during last year’s Yellowstone trip, about how an expanding world-view–which kids gain from art and academic challenges set in the outdoors–can contribute to their successes.
