"The best part about attending CATO was the teachers and admin. The darkest point in my career happened early on, and I went back to the school for support and help. I still get advice to this day. Hearing ugly stories from colleagues and their post secondary institute experiences, has really opened my eyes to how lucky I was to attend CATO. They are experienced veterans who treat your time there as a true professional. I still keep in touch with them and am happy to call them good friends. CATO - highly recommended. Making the decision to go to CATO was one of the best decisions I've made in my life." - Harrison Garvin - Digital Animation Graduate
