CREC Museum Academy provides a comprehensive and challenging museums-based learning environment to students in preschool through grade 5. This approach enables students to learn naturally in environments that support guided exploration and discovery, encourage meaningful apprenticeships, and foster interactions between peers, while also creating hands-on artifacts.

Hands-on, minds-on, authentic learning is on display at the Museum Academy, which partners with museums throughout the state to customize museum teachings and field trips to match the humanities-based curriculum. With a focus on active learning, students in PreK-Grade 5 explore and uncover each lesson so it has greater meaning. Classroom and school-wide projects transform the school into a living museum, with grade-level students acting as guides for exhibitions in our exhibit hall.
