Urban Choice Charter School serves 400 students in grades K-8. Our mission is to provide Rochester students with a safe, supportive, and intellectually challenging educational environment. The central philosophy is that strong student -  teacher relationships are essential to student motivation, engagement, and achievement. This philosophy, in combination with authentic efforts at family involvement, and the effective teaching of a rich, rigorous, and engaging curriculum, will enable students to build a strong foundation for college and career readiness, exceed state achievement standards and defy the demographic challenges of poverty.

Volunteers Needed:
  • At UCCS, we look for volunteers to work with teachers/staff to provide the best experience and support to our students. Volunteers assist teachers and students in the classroom with math, science, writing, social studies and other areas where support is needed. We do our best to match our volunteer interest with the needs of the teachers and students.
