The Transportation Systems Academy Poster I (Auto Technology) won the inaugural Central Academy Homecoming Banner Contest. We want to thank everyone: Medical Science for their banner, Pre-Engineering for their two banners, Performing Arts for their 3-D Cake Banner, Transportation Systems for their second banner, and Information Technology for their banner.
For the past two weeks students at Central Academy have been donating their extra change to help others! The student life organizations at CATA decided to join forces in order to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas.
We are proud to share that Central Academy has been named an A+ school for the 2016-2017 school year! This is the third year in a row the school has earned the state’s highest distinction of A+, and the fourth year of earning an A. Only 87 schools in the state earned this designation for the 2016-2017 school year.
