According to the duCret website, since the school’s inception in 1926, duCret’s mission has been to create an institution in central New Jersey where students can obtain an art education comparable with that of the nation's top art schools and academies found in most major American cities. duCret’s objective from the very beginning, has remained constant in it's commitment to provide students with an intensive professional art education, from within a dynamic, yet personalized environment. The small studio classes at duCret allow for close interaction between students and practicing artists and designers who serve as faculty members and mentors. Though duCret can function as a stepping stone to a college degree, the professional art training program within the school is geared specifically toward enabling students to become self-sustaining entrepreneurs as well.

In 1980, the school sponsored its first annual New Jersey High School Student Art Show. The objective of this exhibit was to showcase the work of New Jersey’s talented high school students. Over the past 35 years the duCret School has exhibited the art of over 10,000 students representing 125 New Jersey high schools.
