• Our Instructional Program
    Instructional design and implementation at The Rochester International Academy are quite unique.  Our team utilizes the best pedagogical research and programs that are currently available for English language learners.  Each student at The Rochester International Academy attends intensive content based English classes 2-3 times daily.  They also receive English language arts, math, science, and social studies instruction in classes that are co-taught by elementary and ESOL teachers in grades 1-6 and content and ESOL teachers in grades 7-12.

    Instruction at The Rochester International Academy is guided by:
