Educational Mission of the Catholic Church
“Catholic Schools afford the fullest and best opportunity to realize the fourfold purpose of Christian education, namely to provide an atmosphere in which the Gospel message is proclaimed, community in Christ is experienced, service to our sisters and brothers is the norm, and thanksgiving and worship of our God is cultivated.”
(Renewing Our Commitment to Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools in the Third Millennium, 2,2005

Rochester Catholic Schools Mission Statement
Rochester Catholic Schools develops the spiritual, social, emotional, and academic growth of young people. RCS partners with parents and the Catholic faith community to nurture the development of a Christ-centered learning environment that fosters a culture of excellence where students grow in wisdom, courage and character. Rooted in Gospel values, RCS students are challenged and supported to become critical thinkers, collaborative problem solvers, creative visionaries and servant leaders who bring hope to the world.

RCS is family. It is community. Beginning in preschool, we felt our family growing. Even after 18 years, some of our closest friends are the children in my son's preschool class. Friendship, fellowship, and faith are all gifts taught in The Nest.
