CATC students’ eye opening trip to Yellowstone National Park

August 5th, 2013  |  Published in Announcements

Ten High School students from the Cincinnati Arts & Technology Center made a trip to Yellowstone last week. The students are high school juniors who participate in programs at the Cincinnati Arts & Technology Center,  which uses the arts and other programs to help at-risk students stay in school, graduate and launch careers.

Their journey of discovery and growth continues as their senior year begins and their theme of study at CATC will be based on Joseph Campbell’s “The Hero’s Journey,” which they’ll express through their artwork.

To read about their journey you can visit their blog –

The plane ride was nerve-wrecking yet exciting at the same time. Once I actually arrived to the cabins, I was speech-less.. everything is beautiful and I can’t wait to see more of this place.– Nancy

…it was the coolest thing I have ever witnessed in my entire life, especially when we went over the clouds, that was my favorite part…–  Wisdom

Today I have experience a lot! I got on a plane for the first time which was fun, a little scary but fun. Then I finally got to leave Cincinnati for a week which is going great. — Tacora
..the somewhat terrifying feeling that we were in the middle nowhere finally hit me, but I’m still excited because I’m a kid at heart — Wisdom
