Our Mission

Our mission is to develop and empower the Latinx community through the promotion of culture, art, work training, and education.

In this way, CCATE embraces four key sectors for a successful community. Based on family, student, and faculty interests and talents, we collaboratively design classes in the areas of dramatic and visual arts, media productions, and music. What makes CCATE unique is how through the intersection of our dreams and determination, we collectively create space for individual growth, community engagement and social change.

CCATE searches strategically to open multi-disciplinary programs that support each of these areas.  Below we expand our mission in each sector.
