Superintendent's Message

Greetings, and thank you for your interest in the Citizenship & Science Academy of Rochester Charter School (CSARCS)!

CSARCS is our newest charter school. It offers Rochester area students the best aspects of public and private education. As a public charter school, CSARCS's tuition-free program offers the small classes and college preparatory programs of a private academy to students who would otherwise be financially constrained to attend public school. Students learn and grow into productive, conscientious citizens with a keen sense of social awareness and community responsibility. 

It is a privilege and a responsibility to work in partnership with parents to educate and nurture their children as our students. We acknowledge the role of the whole community, family, and school in ensuring that each student reaches his or her full potential. With a very low teacher-to-student ratio, students enjoy the benefits of smaller classes and personalized attention. Our academic classes are designed to harness the students' interests and energy before they declare a college major and to see that each student is fully prepared to be successful in college, career, and citizenship.

Faculty and administrators work diligently to provide a complete and unique secondary education to a culturally diverse student group. In a world of constantly changing educational and technological needs, the Citizenship & Science Academy of Rochester Charter School boldly and with innovation prepares today’s youth for the challenges of tomorrow.
