Our small class sizes, deep impact and extra services move adults toward new careers in the medical coding, medical billing and pharmacy technician fields.

ARTS + TECH
Our nationally-recognized program engages high school students from Grand Rapids Public Schools (GRPS) in creative, tuition-free after school experiences from September through May. We also offer summer camps for middle and high school students from any school district, plus a paid summer employment opportunity for select teens.
Adult creative programming is currently available to residents of Samaritas. WMCAT hopes to expand the program to older adults across West Michigan in 2019.
