The Robotics program is supported by a CAD program and CNC machine, and students have the opportunity to learn how to use both machines.

Fine arts classes and extracurricular activities such as art, music, visual arts, and drama are offered, and many students have won regional and state awards.

Charles Finney School leads the way in the Rochester region with Scholastic Art Awards. It was the first private school to participate in the US FIRST Robotics competition, placing in the top spot in 2013.
