Admissions

CREC Academy of Computer Science and Engineering is one of 16 magnet schools managed by the Capitol Region Education Council (CREC) in Greater Hartford. CREC Schools provide students across the region with the chance to identify what fascinates them and pursue it through opportunities that they won't find anywhere else.

Students interested in attending CREC Schools apply through the Regional School Choice Office (RSCO). RSCO serves Hartford and suburban students who are interested in public school choice options in the Greater Hartford Region. Any student who resides in Connecticut can apply to our tuition-free schools by following a simple process.

Using a common RSCO application, applicants for CREC schools and other inter-district magnet, charter, and regional programs, can rank up to five school choice options for the annual lottery to be held each Spring. Students who are not offered a seat in the initial round of the lottery are placed on a waitlist. Families who are provided a waitlist number should accept their waitlist placement by the deadline to secure their waitlist position. Available seats are offered to students on the waitlist through the end of September each year. 

 

CHOOSE the CREC ACADEMY of COMPUTER SCIENCE and ENGINEERING

and MAKE US YOUR FIRST CHOICE!

The lottery application for the 2022 school year is open from December 1, 2021 - to February 28, 2022. 


The application is available by clicking HERE.

If you have any questions about the application process or need assistance with your application, please contact the

CREC Welcome Center by phone at 860-509-3700 or visit in person at 111 Charter Oak Avenue, Hartford, CT.
