Capitol Region Education Council (CREC)

CREC Schools are a system of 18 inter-district tuition-free magnet schools.

CREC Schools are a system of 18 inter-district tuition-free magnet schools, each focused on a specific theme, that serves a diverse group of students across the Greater Hartford, CT area. In 2015, working with Chris Wanner, High 5 designed and installed challenge courses in their schools and began training and mentoring their teachers to help bring adventure education and Edge of Leadership theory to each school. Ongoing services to their program will include training, course inspection and repairs, consulting and ongoing expansion of their program. High Schools in the system will participate in Edge of Leadership’s Summer Program, which brings together students from across the Northeast over three days to develop leadership skills and return to their schools with the goal of improving their communities.
