Principal's Welcome Letter

Welcome to the CREC Academy of Aerospace and Engineering (AAE), a community of dedicated teachers and learners working together to create a truly diverse and high achieving 21st century American school focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). At AAE, we strive to create a school community that embodies the CREC Core values: We Expect Excellence, We Demand Equity, We Act with Courage and We Embrace Collaboration.

Through our rigorous project based curriculum, AAE students are called upon to expect the best from themselves and from us, every single day. We challenge, support and inspire students to push themselves to learn and grow to levels they may have not previously envisioned possible. Our insistence on equity, community and inclusiveness pushes us to ensure that ALL students find success, regardless of race, gender, religion, economic conditions or zip code. Whether it is in middle school STEM courses, high school Aeronautics or Calculus, or in career-focused internships, our students are inspired and supported to achieve at high levels.

In closing, I encourage you to become better connected to our learning community. Come visit our campus and tour the high-tech Aeronautics, Computer Science and Engineering labs, the digital, visual and audio arts studios, and our completely outfitted Physical Education facilities with workout room, rock climbing wall and full soccer field. Meet our highly-skilled and dedicated professional staff of teachers, mentors, tutors, instructional aides and industry experts. Please be sure to attend our regularly scheduled PTO meetings, family fun events and informational sessions. But most importantly, make the effort to connect with your student. Let them know on a daily basis that you are interested in what they do and that you are truly connected to their learning experience, and are there to support their success. If there is any way that I, or anyone at AAE can assist you or your student to be more successful, please do not hesitate to contact us.
