How to Apply

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. Students who are not offered a seat in the initial round of the lottery placement process are placed on a waitlist. Families who are placed on the waitlist 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. 

The Regional School Choice Office (RSCO) is still accepting applications for the 2022-23 school year. The RSCO Late-Application is now available beginning on March 1st though September 15, 2022. Families who missed the February 28th on-time deadline have the opportunity to apply!
