Our Mission

The Academy of Computer Science and Engineering High School is a community that promotes student-centered practices by challenging each student in and out of the classroom to be the writer of their own future. 

Our Vision

The diverse learning community of students, staff, and families at the Academy of Computer Science and Engineering High School partner together to create a comprehensive magnet experience. Every member values ongoing feedback, improvement, and development. Our community strives to create a safe, joyful, inquiry-driven environment embracing collaboration, creativity, and innovation through equitable learning experiences.  Students learn to master the habits of success that prepare them to be college and career ready as the writers of their own futures. 

When 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.  

We’re also a comprehensive high school, which means we have rigorous and innovative course offerings in English Language Arts, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Science.  We have rich offerings in music, visual arts, and theater arts.  Our athletic programs, which run throughout the school year, offer sports for every season and every athlete.  In addition to a rich core of Computer Science courses, our school’s Computer Science theme is woven into courses in every discipline.
