CATA is currently accepting applications 
for both the current and upcoming school year. 

Cocheco Arts and Technology Academy is a college preparatory, public charter school established in 2004 to serve 9th to 12th grade students with specialized interests in arts and technology.  “The artistic expression of the academic experience using the technology of today” permeates all of CATA’s core academics, arts electives, as well as independent studies and extended learning opportunities.  We are located in Dover, NH and are tuition-free to New Hampshire residents.

Our mission is to provide excellence in secondary education through college preparatory academics, performing arts, fine arts, and technology related to the arts.  CATA is dedicated to creating an educational community where each student thrives, exploring personal interests in an atmosphere that encompasses different learning styles, individual learning opportunities, smaller class sizes and multiple methods of learning assessment.

CATA's goals are ...

  • To nurture creative thinkers, independent learners, and active citizens
  • To promote increased skills for admittance to arts-based and/or liberal art colleges using a professional representation of their arts and technology-based skills
  • To promote excellence in education through innovative, engaging and challenging coursework
  • To encourage and guide students to take responsibility for their education
  • To provide a curriculum that integrates arts and technology into the classroom rather than being a supplement to learning
  • To develop methods that identify, sustain and incorporate multiple learning styles and assessment enabling all students to attain their education goals
