International Students Program

International Students are Welcome at Red Creek Central School

Red Creek, NY 13143


The primary mission of the Red Creek Central School District, based on the belief that each student can learn, is to teach, with equity, all students to master fundamental skills. We further accept the responsibility to challenge students to attain higher levels of achievement. We, the Red Creek Central School District, will provide the whole child the opportunity, environment, and encouragement to meet these goals.

The Red Creek Central School District is a small, rural K-12 school district of 900 students in Upstate New York in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region. The district borders Lake Ontario and is located about 45 miles east of Rochester, NY and 30 miles west of Syracuse, NY. Although rural in nature, the Red Creek Central School District has some of the most advanced and progressive technology in place of any New York State school. Complete building Wi-Fi, iPad mobile workstations, state of the art PC’s, award winning library resources, and six separate computer labs make us stand out in front of other districts. This is evidenced by our outstanding high school ranking recently released by Business First, Inc. Our student opportunities include a NYS highly ranked Science Olympiad team, award winning drama program, competitive athletic teams, Advanced Placement US History program, very successful art department, band and choir offerings including jazz band, and a progressive business department.

Serious students are rewarded here by having an outstanding teaching faculty. For example, the most recent New York State Report Card cited that 50% of Mathematics and Science students achieve Mastery status. Red Creek also prides itself on small to average class sizes of 16-17 students in the High School.

Red Creek prides itself on outstanding academic achievement and expects much from its students.

The Red Creek/Fair Haven, NY area is a close-knit community that has a long-term reputation of supporting its school system and helping all children become successful and college/career ready.

If you want a big city lifestyle and to be able to be invisible, Red Creek is not the place for you. However, if you want your teachers to provide individual support and to know you personally, then Red Creek Central School District is the place for you!
