In response to the 2019 Request for Proposals issued in April, the Charter School Office received 23 "letters of intent" to apply to establish new charter schools authorized by the Board of Regents. Eight have been invited to submit a full application, which is due in May.

  4. Citizenship and Science Academy of Rochester Charter School
  5. Collegiate Charter School of Rochester
  6. Emerald Charter School 
  7. Nickel City Preparatory Charter School

  3. Ellington Preparatory Academy of Arts and Sciences Charter School
