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

VA Student

CREC Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts High School is the umbrella name given to two different CREC programs "The Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Half Day" and "The Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Full Day." Since students have different aspirations and creative paths, CREC responded by designing two individual schools/programs with different approaches to arts and intensity of arts education.

Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Half Day is a pre-college, rigorous arts preparatory program expressly designed to develop the skills students need to pursue the arts in college and as a career. Because the focus is strictly on arts education, students will still attend their home district for academics.

At the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Full Day, students explore their own path in arts education by choosing from a variety of arts courses while receiving a fully accredited high school education.
