Mission Statement

The Greater Rochester Association of Private Schools is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of private education. Our organization is focused on serving as a valuable community resource and providing support to our members.

Parents choose private schools because they make a difference. A marked difference in academic achievement, and in social-emotional security and confidence. A difference in the future of the students, in the possibilities they are able to envision in themselves.

Rochester area private schools have been making a difference in families' lives for more than a century. They have the independence to adapt to and prepare students for our rapidly changing world. The exceptional schools in the Greater Rochester Association of Private Schools invite you to broaden the possibilities for your child's future by exploring the unique programs we have to offer. We will help pave the way as you set out with your child on the journey of inspiration.

  • Close-knit communities
  • Individualized attention for students
