At South Atlanta High School of Computer Animation & Design (CAD), students explore some of the most exciting careers of the 21st century.  The school exposes students to a college-preparatory curriculum, complete with Honors and Advanced Placement courses.  All courses use rigorous, problem-based, interdisciplinary teaching and learning strategies to develop students' ability to communicate, collaborate and solve 21st century challenges.  Recognized for three consecutive years as the high school Arts School of the Year, CAD offers two pathways of study: computer animation and industrial design.  The school is equipped with the latest technological resources, allowing students to have hands-on training in claymation and stop motion film production, computer-aided product design, sound mixing and more.  Partnerships with the Cartoon Network, Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta, Communities in Schools Atlanta, and design and production firms help bring learning to life.
