Arts at the Capitol Theater (ACT) and Quinebaug Middle College (QMC), EASTCONN’s magnet high schools, are recruiting students for 2017-2018.

Both magnet high schools are designed for non-traditional, motivated students who are independent learners, and for whom the hometown high school experience just isn’t enough. 

At ACT, located in a beautiful, working theater, students with a keen interest in Creative Writing, Acting, Theater Production (costume and set design, lighting and sound), Audio/Video studies and Dance attend small classes in a rigorous academic learning environment infused with the arts. Students may take free, for-credit college courses at ECSU and QVCC in Willimantic.

At QMC, housed on the campus of Quinebaug Valley Community College (QVCC) in Danielson, students choose from a STEM and Humanities-rich high school curriculum in a college-campus setting. They take free, for-credit QVCC classes, side-by-side with college students, while earning their high school degree in QMC’s state-of-the-art classrooms and labs. Students may also take free, for-credit UCONN courses, while earning their high school degree.
