Our Vertus Philosophy
Vertus High School is a non-profit, public charter high school preparing young men in the City of Rochester in grades 9-12 to be leaders of character for the community and the workplace.
Vertus provides an individualized academic path for each student, allowing them to proceed at their own pace through computer-based learning, reap the benefits of peer support through 12-man teams, and rely on a preceptor, or 24/7 mentor, for intensive coaching and support on a daily basis.
As students move up through the grades, they take on responsibility and learn to become leaders.
Students attend school year-round. The extended school year and day afford them the equivalent of 5.5 years of instruction in a traditional public school.
Community service, robotics, a recording studio, entrepreneurs club, woodworking, photography, student government and sports keep the students engaged and build real-world skills.
