No, you can't set your AP to maintain attitude. You can set it to maintain a climb or descent rate which will vary your attitude pitch slightly - use the VSI box on the MCP

Like was said you can set the autopilot to an altutude and a rate of climb. You should be aware though the autipilot doesn't know about stalls. It will try to maintain your set rate of climb no matter what your speed. If the plane can't maintain your chosen rate of climb it will stall. So pay attention at least the first few times.

Before getting into autopilot it may be well worth learning how to take off in a Cessna and hand fly to altitude. A point worth noting is you climb at a speed and not an attitude or rate of climb. Hope this helps
