Cincinnati Arts and Technology Studios (CATS) is a non-profit organization that harnesses the transformational power of the arts to positively impact the lives of students. Here, students earn elective credits enabling them to graduate from high school and, in the process, gain valuable life skills. CATS was established in 2003 by a small collective of passionate leaders that wanted to make a difference in Greater Cincinnati in a very tangible way. By helping students graduate from high school and join the workforce, it helps break the poverty cycle in our community.
