Many children who need on-going services to build further on their development attend RSD throughout the summer months. We continue to follow the RSD school curriculum and New York State Learning Standards while providing a comprehensive array of recreational and learning activities. To promote natural learning, we incorporate a variety of field trips, hands-on and interactive learning activities, and outdoor experiential activities. Children, who are part of the RSD Elementary and Middle School Programs and whose CSE has approved Summer School Program participation, are eligible to attend.
Rochester School for the Deaf is an inclusive, bilingual school where deaf and hard of hearing children and their families thrive in an extraordinarily rich Regents-level educational environment.
Since 1876, RSD—one of America’s premier private and tuition-free schools, has been successfully building futures for our students and their families.
Hallmarks of an RSD education include:
- New York State Regents-level educational programs;
- Direct communication through American Sign Language and English;
- Highly skilled teaching and support staff professionals;
- Inclusive, barrier-free approach to teaching and learning activities; and
- Support to students and their families through a wide array of accessible services.
RSD strives to go above and beyond all expectations to provide deaf and hard of hearing children and their families with a level of quality educational programs, support services and resources to effectively ensure a satisfying and successful kindergarten through 12th grade school experience.
