Our Programs

GRSLA is working to expand the number of tuition-free, high-quality, summer learning programs in Rochester. We are systematically approaching all 19 Rochester-area colleges and universities to start a summer learning program with the long-term goal of building summer learning pathways from Kindergarten through 12th grade at each institution. GRSLA’s goal is to dramatically improve the high school and higher education graduation rates of low-income Rochester area students. The consortium currently has nine member programs—seven target K-8 children with six-week summer educational enrichment, one uniquely reaches out to elementary and middle schoolers in foster care, and another provides a two-week, residential college experience for older students.

GRSLA is currently partnering with the following institutions to provide high-quality, tuition-free summer programming:

  • Allendale Columbia School
  • EnCompass Resources for Learning
  • The Harley School
  • Monroe Community College
  • Nazareth College
  • SUNY Brockport
  • SUNY Geneseo
  • University of Rochester
