How We Help

As a New Hampshire Public Charter School we do not charge tuition to New Hampshire students.  However, our funding formula is different than a non-choice public school, leaving us with a shortfall each year that we must make up by fundraising.  To help offset our costs we ask for donations from our families and we have a yearly activities fee to offset the cost of supplies and class materials. Subsidies are available for those families who are not able to afford to donate monetarily.

Cocheco Academy of The Arts is a non-profit New Hampshire Public Charter School.  Any high school age student can apply. Our school is not an alternative program. Our graduation requirements meet or exceed NH State DOE standards.

Your Gateway to Learning

We look forward to meeting with you to discuss our school, our academic programs, and to assist you in determining if CATA is right for you.

CATA students are encouraged to move beyond their level of comfort and reach for their highest potential. 

We accept students on a rolling basis though we encourage transfer students to attend our school no later than Quarter 2 of Semester I, or at the start of Semester 2, for the best academic outcome.



And yes, we can do Admissions meetings online, via Google Meet!
