RACS program rests upon a rigorous curriculum that particularly focuses on mathematics and science. State guidelines and other successful college preparation programs including the Rochester Academy Charter School have been utilized to establish specific, rigorous, manageable and measurable academic standards. This will eventually clearly define what each student should know and be able to do upon completion of each grade level and/or grade cluster (intermediate level for grades 7-8 and commencement level for grades 9-12). All courses align with the New York State Learning Standards, every unit addresses state standards and every state standard receives sufficient attention during the year.

It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Rochester Academy Charter School (RACS) is to provide students in grades seven through twelve with rigorous, challenging academics through hands-on, meaningful learning opportunities that will provide them with the skills necessary to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally. Our main focus is to instill intrinsic motivation in our students where their individual characteristics will drive our instruction. Students will be responsible citizens for themselves and others. The instructional focus on Math and Science will prepare our students for the ever-changing technological economy. Students’ expertise in Math and Science will be evident in Olympiad championships and global competitions. Most importantly, students who graduate from RACS will be self-confident individuals prepared to take on the challenges of our community and eventually, our world." (New 2/19/10)
