Welcome to Rochester EOC

Over fifty years of ongoing service to the Rochester community has earned the REOC the reputation as one of the outstanding Centers in the state (there are 10 such centers in New York state; one in or near almost every major city). Teachers, counselors, support staff, and administrators, with the support of The College at Brockport and the SUNY Center for Academic and Workforce Development, together have worked to give students the opportunity to gain skills needed to continue to college or obtain a career.
