City Arts And Tech High

Deadline for Application: Friday, January 11th, 2019


At CAT, we believe it is our job to ensure that every CAT graduate leaves high school with the knowledge and skills necessary to enter, succeed in, and graduate from college. We recognize that our community is diverse and thus, students come to CAT with a variety of interests, talents, goals, and challenges. We welcome and value this diversity and work collaboratively as a professional community to empower our students to excel in whichever educational, personal, and professional paths they choose to pursue.

Because our goal at CAT is to build students’ academic and leadership skills, Envision’s educational model requires students to demonstrate mastery in many areas including: literacy, critical thinking, problem solving, public speaking, group collaboration, and creative expression. Through the College Success Portfolio and Defense system, students get the opportunity to showcase their best work before a panel of teachers, students, and administrators who evaluate their academic skills, growth, reflectiveness and most importantly their preparedness for college.

While the College Success Portfolio process is challenging, your student is never alone in meeting the challenge. CAT teachers and staff work tirelessly to tutor, mentor, and advocate for their students. In addition to being classroom instructors, every CAT teacher serves as an academic advisor. The primary role of an academic advisor is to monitor their advisees’ progress towards graduation, to coordinate their advisees’ parent-teacher conferences, and to help their advisees develop a strong academic identity and sense of responsibility to themselves and their communities
