Student-Centered Learning: City Arts and Technology High School


"This report, funded by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, explores how City Arts and Technology High School (CAT) is using student-centered approaches to learning to ensure that all students, especially those who are underserved, are college-ready upon graduation.

CAT emphasizes a strong student-centered focus, student-based inquiry, self-reflection, student exhibitions and portfolio defenses, and ongoing professional development for teachers. CAT holds students to high academic expectations by nurturing strong relationships with the students and coherent instructional approaches and expectations to help provide consistency for their students, many of whom had not previously experienced academic success."
