Learning Corridor

Learning CorridorThe Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Half-Day Program is located at Hartford’s scenic Learning Corridor at 15 Vernon Street; it is a $110 million campus on 16 acres, housing two magnet schools and two programs, including The Half-Day Arts Academy. The campus extends from the eastern edge of the Trinity College campus on Broad Street to the western edge of the Institute of Living on Washington Street. Built in 2001, this Pre-K-12 campus provides exceptional educational opportunities for Hartford and suburban children alike.

Specialized Learning Spaces

The Half-Day Arts Program’s learning spaces foster the creative potential of each student with specialized spaces that include a main stage theater, a black box theater, a recital hall, multiple dance studios, acting studios, music practice rooms, piano labs, a recording studio, visual arts galleries, a dark room, a scene shop, a costume shop, and artists’ suites.

Theater of the Performing Arts

The space is used for all Academy performances and gallery showings. It is available to the community for use for events.

Land Acknowledgement

We, the CREC Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Half-Day Program, acknowledge that the land, now known as the Learning Corridor where our program is located, is the ancestral land of the Sicaog People and the Sequin Nation. As well, we wish to acknowledge the Greater Frog Hollow Neighborhood that occupied this land immediately before the Learning Corridor was built. As a community committed to social justice and equity, it is vitally important that we not only acknowledge our history, but also name the groups that have been displaced in the process of creating the educational entities that comprise the Learning Corridor. Most importantly, it is fitting that we make this acknowledgement when our charge as Artist-Instructors is not only to train our students in the development of their artistic abilities and skills, but also to challenge them to use their art and their artistic voices to become social activists in their communities, their state, and the world for the greater good of all people.
