Annual Fund Update 

We are fast approaching the end of the 2017-2018 school year and we still have quite a ways to go to reach our Annual Fund goal of $40,000 for the year. We have been contacted by an anonymous school supporter who is generously offering a match grant. For every $4.00 donated to the school, they will donate a dollar with a limit of $5,000. this donation match grant is only available until June 30, 2018. Please help us reach our goal.

Rock For The Arts

The 2nd annual Rock For The Arts  was held June 1st at the Dover Brickhouse. The sold out show was very successful and brought in approximately $2800 for CATA's Annual Fund. Attendees were entertained by CATA alumni Emily Donovan and Cole Whitehead, the CATA Jazz/Rock Band, a collection of staff and students named Late Pass, Duty Free featuring CATA's own Eric Turner, and The Green Bullets, which also featured two CATA alumni. We would like to extend a huge thank you to Dover Brickhouse for the fantastic venue and food, Emily Donovan, Cole Whitehead, Duty Free, The Green Bullets, and all of the CATA staff and students who performed and worked the event. A special thank you to CATA senior Abbye Chick and junior Alison Frisella who co-hosted the event.
