At RACS, we celebrate the power of choice by providing parents and students with unique life-changing learning experiences. Like public schools, our educational services are tuition-free. Unlike public schools, our approach to learning is different in ways that make a positive difference in our student’s lives.
At RACS, expectations run high. We expect more from students by challenging them with demanding academics including our Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) run in conjunction with Monroe Community College. We expect more from teachers and hold them accountable for providing students with the motivation, inspiration and support they need to achieve. We expect more from administrators and staff by making sure they do everything possible to give students a safe, secure school environment where learning is always priority one.
