Academics

When current parents talk about the value of an RCLS education, they very often suggest or say outright that they love RCLS because it is “more than just a school.” Still, it is a school, after all, and that means we are committed to offering an excellent education, one that is distinctive in Rochester. As a Christian preschool-grade 8 school, RCLS is committed to equipping every student with the core academic knowledge and skills and study habits that will enable him/her to excel in later stages of learning. This is accomplished, first, by committed, certified teachers who create a structured learning environment in which students are safe and affirmed as they grow and learn. Within that context, the three hallmarks of an RCLS education––foundational learning, differentiated instruction, and whole-child education––give shape to the curriculum and to classroom instruction.
