Mission Statement

Vertus High School, a free public charter school for young men in Rochester, prepares leaders of character for the community and the workplace. Also Vertus High School has moved! We are now located at 21 Humboldt street Rochester, NY 14609

Description

Vertus is a year-round blended-learning high school serving at-risk, inner-city boys. Each young man is part of a small learning team of 12-16 students, led by a highly trained, full-time professional called a "Preceptor." The Preceptor is 100% responsible for the success of each student on his team and serves as a mentor, guide, and teacher. Each day, each Preceptor leads his team of young men as they rotate through personalized, mastery-based on-line coursework in learning labs, face-to-face instruction with teachers, and hands-on learning activities. Students who arrive far behind grade level are placed in age-appropriate on-line and teacher-led reading and math courses that meet them where they are and build the skills needed for high school courses as quickly as possible. Each Vertus student is expected to go to college or to begin a career - whichever path is right for him. In their last two years at Vertus, students attend dual credit classes at a community college and earn a career credential.
