Cocheco Arts and Technology Academy (CATA) 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 an historic mill on the banks of the Cocheco River in downtown Dover, NH.
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.
