Why CREC?

Why CREC?

A School Just for You

At CREC Schools, you can choose from theme-based academies that let you focus on your interests – from environmental science and technology to global studies. No matter what theme you choose, there’s room to follow your interests and apply what you’ve learned in the real world.

A Jumpstart on the Future


Through internships and special projects, you’ll gather valuable career skills right now. You can also get a head start on college by attending classes on a college campus, earning credits while still in high school. You’ll be paired up with mentors in the fields that interest you, experienced professionals who may become lifelong contacts.

A New Community

Choosing to go to a CREC School may mean leaving your hometown and friends you’ve gone to school with for years. At your new CREC School, you’ll work in small groups on projects with a diverse group of students from all over Greater Hartford – students who share your interests and who are also looking to make new friends.
