crec academy of aerospace & engineering elementary School ground breaking


On Thursday, September 20, 2018, we joined the students, faculty and administration of the Capitol Region Education Council, to celebrate the CREC Academy of Aerospace & Engineering Elementary School groundbreaking in Rocky Hill. 

The 89,693 square foot school will serve 704 students in Grades Pre-K - Grade 5.  The design intends to inspire students and encourage exploration.  During solstice and equinox events, students may view the sun as it rises and sets through corridors that radiate from the center of the site. Students experience the earth’s changing position relative to the sun throughout the year marked by this building’s form.

The Friar team is excited as this important school construction project moves forward.  The school is scheduled for completion by fall of 2020.
