    School Choice in 3 steps

    The 2024-25 School Choice Process for the Rochester City School District is open.  During the School Choice Lottery, City residents with children entering Pre-K, Kindergarten, 7th, and 9th grade can enroll online for the 2024-25 school year.

    For information about school choices, talk to your child's counselor.  To learn how to enroll and to view a digital magazine showcasing middle and high schools in our district, visit rcsdk12.org/schoolchoice.

    Applying online by the lottery deadline gives your child the best choice of schools. Students who do not participate in the School of Choice Lottery will be placed in a school closest to your home where space is available after the selection process is complete.
