About TRECA

TRECA is committed to delivering the convenience and flexibility of an online educational experience without compromising quality. Our students utilize a comprehensive and interactive curriculum that meets all of Ohio’s Learning Standards. We’re a non-profit, publicly funded Ohio public school, so our mission is to serve your needs.

Who We Are

Schools are schools, right? Ehh... not quite. Some are big. Some are small. Some teach fast. Others teach slow. Some focus on the sole mission of preparing students for college. Others devote their time to teaching specific skills.

At TRECA, we believe each student has unique needs and unique passions. You can't make education any one thing. In order for students to succeed, we believe their individual needs must come first. This is why we built our philosophy around one idea: helping students find their path.

What We Believe

We want to provide all students with a meaningful learning experience – despite the obstacles they face. We’ll prepare them for tomorrow by...

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 when we became one of the first e-schools in the state of Ohio. In our first year we served almost 700 students. Fast forward to today, and that number has grown to over 2000! From the very beginning, we were focused on one thing: our students. We knew if we wanted them to have a successful educational experience, it required putting their needs first. And that's what we've done every step of the way.
