NEW YORK: Rochester charter schools get $1 million grant

grant-moneySix Rochester charter schools have been awarded a total of $1 million in grant money from the Farash Foundation, according to a press release from the foundation.

Three of the schools — PUC Achieve, Vertus Charter School and Renaissance Academy — will open for the first time this fall, and the grant money will go toward their facilities and start-up costs. The same is true for the new Rochester Prep high school, which will accept students from the existing Rochester prep schools.

Eugenio Maria de Hostos Charter school will get funding to open a new K-8 campus on Joseph Avenue. Now, grades 4-8 are on Clifford Avenue.

University Preparatory Charter School for Young Men will get money for its Young Men’s Wellness Initiative.

“Charter schools are now an acknowledged part of the educational landscape in Rochester,” Theresa Mazzullo, chairwoman of the foundation’s Grants Committee, said in a statement. “We believe their contributions here can and will become even more significant as time goes on.”
