Connecticut River Academy: An Early College Model to Education

We believe learning shouldn’t be confined to a classroom. We believe your child’s success later in life depends on the choices you make now.

Sustainability Theme

The Connecticut River Academy's Sustainability Theme includes two areas of study: Environmental Studies and Advanced Manufacturing.

Environmental Studies provides students with opportunities to experience first-hand what environmental scientists and engineers actually do. Students learn about relevant environmental and social issues such as climate change and green energy in the school's state-of-the-art laboratories and on its very own research vessel.

Students can also explore how current advancements in technology will shape the future of our planet with Advanced Manufacturing. Working hands-on with cutting-edge equipment and high-tech machinery such as 3-D printers and robotics, students gain experience in technologies including advanced manufacturing, engineering, and logistics.

Early College High School Model

In addition to a full range of high school courses, students grade 11-12 have the opportunity to earn up to 30 transferable college credits through our early college model. Unlike at many other high schools, our students get a head start on their college career while still in high school, all at no tuition cost. At the Connecticut River Academy, students are prepared academically and socially for college – laying an important foundation for their future success. Our students enjoy a curriculum filled with opportunities for hands-on learning and discovery – inside and outside the classroom.
