Get Ready to Believe and Read! Rochester Catholic Schools Announces Transformative Literacy Partnership with Best-In-Class Program

We are thrilled to announce an exciting new collaboration between RCS and best-in-class literacy initiative, Believe and Read, setting the stage for a game-changing journey towards academic excellence and a lifelong love for reading!

Believe and Read is a proven initiative that will bring the LETRS from Lexia methodology (based in the “science of reading” or structured literacy) to our elementary schools through outstanding professional development and teacher coaching.

All students who participate in the program will benefit — struggling readers become proficient, and good readers become great ones!

We warmly welcome you to join us in championing Believe and Read, and to spread the word with families you know!
