CATS Principal









Our school year has begun on a very busy and positive note. Students  have been welcomed to an atmosphere that prepares them to move beyond the school walls  and to gain workplace and site-based experiences.  We encourage our students to engage with community organizations as they learn to work both independently and collaboratively with people.
