Academy Season


Half Day or Full Day: What's The Difference?

VA StudentCREC Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts High School is the umbrella name given to two different CREC schools  “The Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Half Day" and "The Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Full Day." Both schools are designed to expose students to high quality arts education. Since students have different aspirations and creative paths, CREC responded by designing two individual schools with different approaches to arts and intensity of  training. This allows students to choose how they wish to delve into their arts education.
