Rochester Academy of Science Charter School (RocSci) is a proposed, tuition-free public charter school for the students and families in Rochester. We are seeking to open our doors to K-1students in September 2022. We then plan to add Grade 9 students in September 2023, and grow to K-12. RocSci is part of the Buffalo Academy of Science Charter School (BuffSci) system. We are one of the highest-performing charter school systems in Western New York. Opened in 2004, BuffSci is a STEM-focused, college-prep charter school that has achieved great results for Buffalo students. As part of its strategic plan, BuffSci is proposing to expand its services to serve Rochester students by replicating our successful school model.

BuffSci & RocSci

The Buffalo Academy of Science Charter School (BuffSci) is a tuition-free, college preparatory charter school for grades Kindergarten through 12 dedicated to providing quality education to a diverse body of students in the Buffalo region of New York State. Established in 2004, BuffSci is now one of the best charter schools in Buffalo and is looking to expand in Rochester.


We hope that you will lend your support for the proposed RocSci school. We are excited to address the needs of your children by extending the same high-quality education we provide our current students. We believe all children have unlimited potential and deserve the right to lead successful, purposeful lives. Please fill out the surveys and petition to show your support!
