Institution Description

We’re growing and have full and part-time positions opening up.

A tuition-free public charter school serving approximately 130 students in grades 9 and 12 Rochester STEM Academy was 1 of only 2 charter school applications in the entire state to be approved in 2010 and chosen to receive a federal planning grant. Its founding board was brought together in response to the pent-up demand for an academically rigorous charter high school that could give a viable boost to Rochester’s industries and children in terms of both academics and future employment.

In 2018, 24 seniors graduated and three of them received their Associate Degree from Rochester Community and Technical College (RCTC) before receiving their high school diplomas. Spring of 2019, we graduated 30 seniors and PSEO college students exceeded 600 college credits. This fall, we already more than 25 students registered at RCTC!
