Meet our students and graduates

The faces of CATC students and graduates tell the story better than words ever could. As we begin our 10th year in operation, we have helped more than 3,000 urban teens graduate and prepare for successful lives. Each year we serve about 400 students, using proven arts programming at a sophisticated level to re-engage them in learning. And it works. An average 93% of CATC seniors graduate, year after year. As an extension, we started the Bridging the Gap workforce development program to prepare them for careers. We stay with them for the first year to ensure they are firmly established in their new jobs and have the best chance of building self-sufficient lives for themselves and their future families.
