The CREC Ana Grace Academy of the Arts Elementary Magnet School utilizes research-based teaching and learning practices in reading, mathematics, science, technology and the arts, students make interdisciplinary connections, engage in project-based learning, and work with professional artists as they develop and refine new skills.

Instruction in core academic areas, as well as participation in live performances and public showcases of their work, provides students with challenging learning activities that develop their ability to demonstrate creativity, communicate effectively, collaborate with others, and assume leadership roles. This opportunity provides elementary students a continuum of learning as they prepare to progress on to the Middle and High School programs at GHAA and ultimately higher education and/or a career in the arts.
