Principal's Welcome

As your principal, I look forward each day to strengthening the relationships that I have begun building with all of our wonderful students, families, business partners, and talented staff members.  

As we continue our commitment to helping all students develop their technical, academic, and social proficiencies, students will be better prepared to effectively negotiate the demands associated with living in an ever-changing 21st century.  

Beyond the rigors of their academic program, it is our goal to prepare every student with the essential employability skills and certifications in order to be productive members of society.


We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families, business partners and volunteers to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want . . . we need . . . and we value your involvement and support in our school!  Your active participation is key in helping prepare each of our students for college and career readiness.

Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at CATS.  Communication is vital, and it plays an integral role in each student’s success.  We encourage you to contact us and stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.

Again, we welcome you to our wonderful learning community.   A place where Commitment . . .Achievement. . . Teamwork. . .  Success . . .   are celebrated daily! The sky is truly the limit!
