The CATS program supports approximately 400 Cincinnati Public High School students each year with the sole purpose to help the student stay in school, graduate and succeed in life.
Your generous contribution to Cincinnati Arts and Technology Studios helps us create an immersive environment where students are encouraged, mentored and taught valuable life and career skills to strengthen the fabric of Greater Cincinnati’s communities. We have many different levels of tax-deductible donation options ranging from small donations that provide studio supplies to sponsoring a CATS student.
If you have any questions or a special request regarding a donation, Kasey Jo Trbovich, our Director of Development, is more than happy to work directly with you. She can be reached at TrbovichK@catsorg.org or 513-562-5500.
Unlike traditional high school programs, CATS studio courses are taught in a “guild” model where students work side-by-side with practicing artist who exhibit and sell their art locally, nationally, and internationally. The guild model creates bonds and encourages students’ development of skills and discipline needed for success in all walks of life.
CATS first-class Digital Multimedia (DMM) Studio is a dynamic multi-media environment where students collaborate in the planning, development, presentation of audio, photo, video and digital production through the use of various software programs such as Photoshop, Maya 3-D, Illustrator, Garage Band, iMovie and others. Research asserts that a 21st century learning environment and opportunities are essential to prepare students for the challenges of work, life, and citizenship.
