Convenient and Flexible Online Learning

TRECA is committed to delivering the convenience and flexibility of online learning without compromising quality. Through our full-time, part-time, summer school, test prep, and technical programs, our students learn within a comprehensive and interactive curriculum that meets all of Ohio’s Learning Standards. We’re a non-profit organization whose mission is ensuring every student has meaningful learning experiences despite the obstacles they may face.

Who We Are

No two schools are exactly alike. Some have large classes, and others have small classes. Some focus on preparing students for college and standardized tests, while others emphasize creativity or technical skills. At TRECA, we believe each student has unique educational needs and passions, so you can't make education any one thing. For students to succeed, we believe their individual needs have to come first. That's why we built our philosophy around one idea: helping students find their own paths through school and beyond.

What We Believe

We strive to provide all students with a meaningful online learning experience, despite the obstacles they may face. We work with each student to understand his or her unique situation to eliminate as many barriers to learning as possible. From day one, we also work to build relationships—both inside and outside of the classroom. We also want to help students understand the lasting value of education and that learning will still be a big part of their lives even after they finish school.

Removing Barriers

Every student faces obstacles. They take different shapes and forms, but one of our biggest beliefs is that student success is dependent on removing these barriers. Our staff works with each student to understand his or her unique situation and eliminate as many barriers to learning as possible.

Building Relationships

Both in the classroom and out, we believe students need to be equipped with relational skills to help them be successful in all walks of life: their jobs, their families, their friends, their futures. And to do this, we start by building meaningful connections with our students from day one!

Making Learning Relevant

"When will I ever use this?" We've all asked this question at some point. At TRECA, we want to help students see why education is important, how it connects to future goals, and that it can be fun in the process!

Our Story

Our journey began in 2001, the year we became one of the first e-schools in the state of Ohio. In our first year, we served almost 700 students, a number that has grown to over 2,000. From the very beginning, we have always focused on one thing: our students. We know that providing them with a successful educational experience requires putting their needs first, which is what we've done every step of the way.

  • In 2001, TRECA opened and provided each student with a desktop computer.
  • In 2006, we created our Student Assistance Family Engagement (SAFE) program to provide consultations on social-emotional and family problems that may be serving as barriers to learning.
  • In 2009, we started TRECA Flex, which allows any Ohio student to learn with us part-time by taking individual online courses while enrolled full-time at their local school.
  • In 2010, TRECA transitioned from desktop to laptop computers and provided each student with a high-speed internet connection.
  • In 2011, we created an advisor position to expand each student's learning support system and provide additional communication with their families.
  • In 2014, TRECA provided each student with an iPhone and a hotspot internet connection, which allowed our students to learn anywhere.
  • In 2016, we introduced our parent portal to give parents easy access to their student's progress and grades.
  • In 2018, we started TRECA Tech, a career technical education program, to help prepare students for workforce jobs and earn industry credentials.

At TRECA, we believe that every student, regardless of their situation, should have more educational control and flexibility. For more information on our online learning programs, please contact us today.
