"Honoring our Roots and Branching Towards the Future."
Our mission is to provide newly arrived English language learners with an instructional program that simultaneously facilitates acquisition of the English language, content knowledge, and academic skills. The Rochester International Academy also emphasizes the importance of social and emotional supports in an academic setting, home-school connections, and community involvement.
Staff and students at RIA will have access to a 3D printer, programming software, Littlebits electronic kits and Minecraft Edu. This was made possible through the University of Rochester and the National Science Foundation.
