Power School

The Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts is committed to keeping parents and students informed of students' academic performance. The GHAA Parent Portal is an Internet-based program that allows you to check in on your child's academic achievement progress. We encourage you to make use of our Parent Portal to keep in touch with your child's achievement grades throughout the school year.

Parents/Guardians are mailed a user name and password at the beginning of the school year. If you have difficulty with your login or password please contact Christine Diaz-Ocasio at cdiazocasio@crec.org. For security reasons, a new password or ID will be mailed to the current home address on file. Please contact the subject area teacher with any questions regarding specific grades. To view your child's achievement grades on-line, use a working Internet connection and any common Internet browser.

Type in the following information:

  • The web address (URL) is powerschool.crec.org.
  • Your Guardian/Parent Confidential logon ID
  • Your Guardian/Parent Password

You can view your child's progress by clicking on the grade for each class. As this is our initial implementation of the web Parent Portal, you may see different levels of information vary from class to class or teacher to teacher. In addition, since each student's progress is an ongoing average, grade percentages will change over the course of the marking period. Grades will be updated each Monday by 8:00 a.m. The implementation of Parent Portal is limited to Non-Arts Academic classes. While you may view information regarding Arts classes, that information may not be updated or complete. Questions about Arts classes should be directed to your student's Arts Department Chair.

To date, PFAA members have sponsored the annual orientation for incoming students, a college financial aid workshop for parents, a field trip to the Performing and Visual Arts College Fair in Boston, and annual fundraisers.
