The Rochester Catholic Schools (RCS) policy specifies that to enter kindergarten, a student must be five years of age by September 1. Occasionally, exceptions to this policy are made for children whose potential and skills are in the superior range. RCS has specific criteria and procedures for considering parent requests for early entrance. Rochester Catholic Schools takes the issue of early entrance very seriously. This decision is made after thoughtful deliberation, counseling, and assessment of the child. Please contact the building principal if you wish to learn more about the process.
