Collaboration Among Rochester Educators

The partnership between Rochester Public Schools and Rochester Community and Technical College

The CARE vision is to…

Develop collaborative programs that provide pathways to college and career opportunities while enhancing learning experiences for students.

Our primary focus is the students of Rochester Public Schools that choose Rochester Community and Technical College as a pathway in their educational and career endeavors.

We share in the vision for student success and recognize the direct positive relationship between educational nurturing of students and the well-being of their communities, regions and the state as a whole. Funding for CARE programming comes as a direct result of contracting for PSEO services yet we are exploring the possibilities of grant writing for additional funding. We’re adamant about a continuing commitment to this effort. Together, we are helping students grow and succeed – Because we CARE.

  • Summer Bridge Program
