RCS Fund for Academic Excellence

Once again, our teachers and staff have gone above and beyond to provide our students with a school year filled with challenging curriculum and innovative, hands-on learning opportunities that embrace a faith-based education.

We ask you to take the time now to help support our educators through a gift to the RCS Fund for Academic Excellence. This fund advances the RCS Strategic Plan goals to retain and recruit the best and brightest teachers and staff. Your gift to this fund enhances teacher compensation, including salaries and medical benefits. Our goal is to compensate our educators at 85% of Rochester Public Schools salaries.

When you make a gift to the Fund for Academic Excellence, name an educator that has made an impact on your student or family! Find the list of honored educators on our Celebrate our Educators page!

Thank you Dr. Paul Morgan

We aren't starting from scratch, however. Through the bequest of Dr. Paul Morgan to Lourdes High School, the fund balance is now over $500,000! Dr. Morgan's legacy will live on through this generous investment in our educators.

This past fall, we convened a Compensation Task Force to explore what it would take to reach our goal to compensate our educators at 85% of Rochester Public Schools salaries. Through the work of this group, we're reworking our salary scale to be more sustainable and learned we need to grow our salary budget by $2.2 million over the next five years.

Make Your Gift Today!

Your gift supports and strengthens the tenets of our educational mission: EXCELLENCE encouraged for all, CHARACTER shaped by faith, and COMMUNITY devoted to growth. You are building the bridge to a bolder and brighter future for the teachers, staff, and students of RCS.
