CATS Principal









Students, Parents and Stakeholders:

The last few months of the second semester are usually very busy. 

We are  into our last quarter of the school year. I encourage students to do what is necessary to get your time made up; prepare for final competitions; earn as many course  certifications as required; complete all projects and assignments as early as possible and prepare to do well on your end of course and end-of-grade tests.

We are very proud of our students accomplishments so far and anticipate a strong finish with testing and National Competitions in June.  Our camps will begin on June 19, 2023 and go until August 2, 2023 so we have a busy summer scheduled. 

Please mark your calendar for the following important events:
