Center for Creative Youth

Center for Creative Youth at Wesleyan University

2015 Summer Session: June 29 — July 24

The Center for Creative (CCY), a summer pre-college residential program, offers talented high school students four weeks of intensive study in the arts at Wesleyan University, one of the country's most distinguished liberal arts colleges. CCY is a program of the Capitol Region Education Council and is sponsored in collaboration with Wesleyan's Center for the Arts.

CCY emphasizes multicultural and interdisciplinary learning, critical thinking and leadership. Each class is designed to enhance students' problem-solving skills in instrumental and vocal music, theater, musical theater, creative writing, dance, filmmaking and visual arts, which includes photography.

Fall Symposium

Save the date! Saturday, October 25th 2014, 10am - 2pm

Fall Symposium is a time for CCY 2014 students, faculty and RA’s to gather together once again! We will reflect on the developments and changes we’ve all experienced since CCY ended in July, discuss ongoing leadership projects, share new ideas, and of course celebrate our continued passion for the ARTS! We’ll spend time in the major art form groups, and as a full community.

Please bring with you (or send via email) any articles and/or reviews of your works-in-progress, or news on your upcoming events for our Message Board/News letter.

If you still want copies of the DVDs we have to offer, please complete the order form ASAP. Please make checks payable to CCY (with the student’s name in the memo section) and mail it to the address shown below. Previously ordered videos will be available for pick up at the Symposium.

Kindly let us know ASAP if you will be attending - or if you will not be able to! We would appreciate knowing, either way. Please respond either via email at or telephone at (860) 757-6391. We look forward to hearing from you!

Registration is at 10am in the lobby of the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, at 15 Vernon Street, Hartford. map
