The Comp Sci High Experience 

student-with-hands-on-keyboardWhen you come to the CREC Academy of Computer Science and Engineering, you get an opportunity you can’t get anywhere else.  “Comp Sci High,” as you’ll come to call it, is a one-of-a-kind comprehensive high school with immersive technology education, rigorous academic opportunities, extended learning experiences, expansive AP and Early College Experiences, and a school community that feels like family.  

According to the World Economic Forum, 65% of the jobs our students will have don’t exist yet.  We’re here to give you the skills and attributes to succeed in that world.  Our core Computer Science program goes beyond what most schools offer as electives, including two full years of coding (in Python and JavaScript), a full year of Product Development, and coursework in Digital Citizenship, entrepreneurship, and elements of digital design.  More important, however, are the attributes of critical thinking, problem solving, tenacity, flexibility, empathy, compassion, self-starting, and courage that will help you build the bright future you always dreamed of.

As you transition from high school to college and beyond, you’ll have the opportunity to choose a pathway in Computer Science, Design, or Entrepreneurship.  Each of these pathways presents opportunities for college-level study both on and off campus.  You will enjoy opportunities for internships and work-based learning experiences that set you up for success in college and career.  We are committed to getting you ready for not just college, but for life.
