The former Wayne School on East Avenue is now the Erie Center for Arts and Technology (ECAT) after a ribbon cutting on Thursday afternoon.
The former school was part of the Erie School District but was purchased by ECAT in 2019.
The $12 million renovation includes ECAT’s offices, classrooms and the UPMC Jameson School of Nursing.
“We have transformed this school into a center of technology, a center of arts, a center of learning, a center of excellence,” said Charles “Boo” Hagerty, the chair of ECAT, “and we are very proud to be here today.”
The ECAT programs are slated to start this fall.
