About PCAT

The Philadelphia Center for Arts and Technology® (PCAT) is a vibrant community learning center located in the heart of Northwest Philadelphia that fosters engaged and well-rounded citizens by offering children, youth, and adults the academic and enrichment opportunities they need to build confidence and 21st century skills. Education is at the heart of everything we do at PCAT. From individualized tutoring and dance classes to adult technology courses and summer camp, PCAT is a fantastic place to learn and grow.

Our Building

Once an old warehouse, the building that houses PCAT is now a high-tech, state-of-the-art learning space, where youth receive academic instruction and personalized attention from caring adults, explore career pathways, and ready themselves for skilled positions in the high-growth fields of the arts, science, technology, and emerging "green" trades. PCAT is also a resource for students with more complex educational, social, or family issues; staff connect such individuals with appropriate supports in the community.

By design, PCAT programs expose community members to areas of study and career opportunities seldom available to inner city populations. To accomplish this, PCAT relies on many regional organizations, businesses, and universities to provide world-class programming aligned with youth's interests and linked to post-secondary opportunities.

PCAT is a collaborative, community-based initiative spearheaded by the Office of Pennsylvania State Representative Dwight Evans, the Ogontz Avenue Revitalization Corporation, and Foundations, Inc.
