The Rock Academy has been an incredible school for my children! They are committed to teaching servant leadership, kindness, respect, responsibility, critical thinking, and helping kids grow in the purpose the Lord has for them. They treat each child as a special and unique individual. They are committed to partnering with you as a parent to create a safe learning environment for all the children. I personally love how all the teachers, not just my child's grade teacher, along with Mrs. Goodman and Mrs. Boyett (our principal and vice-principal) know every child and parent my name. It is a positive environment that challenges kids to think and grow in their learning. The Rock has been an awesome answer to prayer for us! My kids are thriving!

The more we got to know the team at The Rock, the more impressed we became by their genuine attention and affection for their students. They are not only intentional and involved educators, but thoughtful partners. The staff provides a holistic education, focusing on the mind, body, soul and spirit of our children. Three years later, our children are thriving young leaders who can think critically, communicate confidently, and tackle tough social emotional situations.

We absolutely LOVE The Rock Academy. We felt a part of the family from the moment we stepped on campus. Everyone from families who attend, teachers, staff, faculty and students are welcoming. The teachers go above and beyond to work with students and help them become leaders. The school partners with parents (IE: asks for input, etc.) and communication is thorough. There are so many extra activities the school invests in to make learning fun and include the family throughout the year. As summer is winding down, my son is asking when school is starting with HAPPY anticipation to be back on campus.

The Rock Academy has been one of the best things to happen to our family. We made the decision to leave public school two years ago due to lack of transparency and having very little voice in our four kids' education. Since coming to the Rock Academy our kids have been thriving academically, socially and in their faith. We love the small class sizes and extracurricular activities like elementary sports and performing arts. The teachers/administrators treat our kids like family and have gone above and beyond to help them overcome challenges and thrive. The Rock Academy truly feels like one big family, and we feel so blessed to be a part of it.

The Rock Academy is an academically rigorous school with emphasis on character development. The Christian curriculum compliments our family faith. Its small size enhances the learning experience as all the teachers know the students well and are invested in helping them make progress.


What is the Rock Academy’s student-teacher ratio?

Our student-teacher ratio is currently 14:1. Because of this, our teachers have the opportunity to truly know and understand each child, allowing them to build lasting relationships and help develop each child’s gifts and abilities fully.

How rigorous are the academic standards at the Rock Academy?

The Rock Academy provides a challenging academic program which trains students to be deep thinkers, dynamic communicators, and do-something Christians. Our program is not rigorous for the sake of rigor, though. The students, faculty, and staff delight in the joy of learning! We hold high expectations of both our students and faculty, coupled with a community of grace and acceptance where students are known and loved for who they are.

Do you accept students with learning needs?

Yes. The Rock Academy Educational Support Program specializes in the creation of individualized academic support plans for students in grades K-12 who are challenged with mild learning difficulties. Students’ in the Program benefit from a personalized combination of classroom, small group, and one-on-one instruction. Students are taught through a multi-modality learning environment supplemented with strategies designed to meet their specific academic learning needs. Learn more.

Do you have after-school care?

Yes. For grades K-6, we offer after-school care until 6 p.m. for a small additional fee. Our after-school program is intentionally designed with outdoor activities, engaging games, and learning support.

What are your financial aid opportunities?

Although giving your child the gift of a Christian education can be costly, we believe it is a lasting investment worth making. With that in mind, we understand not all families can afford tuition. Our hope is to partner with you to make becoming a part of the Rock Academy community a possibility. We encourage families with financial concerns to apply for our Tailored Tuition program.

What is Tailored Tuition?

It is our hope to help families that desire a Christian education for their children. Tailored Tuition is a program designed to help tailor your child’s tuition to meet your financial needs. Students at the Rock Academy pay a range of tuition based on each family’s unique circumstances. The Tailored Tuition application is separate from our enrollment application. Once a family has been accepted into the school, the family may choose to apply for Tailored Tuition.

What extracurricular opportunities are offered?

We believe that co-curricular enrichment is a necessary part of a well-rounded education. Elementary students have the opportunity to participate in school-wide drama productions, and grades 4-6 can play on one of our athletic teams that compete against other schools. In the middle school and high school, there are a plethora or artistic opportunities and athletic teams. 90% of or 7 -12 grade students participate in athletics, or in a visual/performing arts activity. Learn more on our Student Life page.

Do I have to be a Christian to attend the Rock Academy?

While the Rock Academy is a Christian school, not everyone who attends our school is a Christian. Biblical beliefs and a Biblical worldview are interwoven throughout all subject areas, and all faculty and staff profess the Christian faith. We don’t ask all families to acknowledge the Christian faith, but we do ask them to support and respect the teachings we hold dear at our school.

How are disciplinary issues handled?

The heart of a child is just as important to us as the mind of a child. Through compassionate, restorative discipline, we seek to shape each child’s character in a way that honors and respects others and recognizes Christ as the authority of all. We acknowledge the need for the power and work of the Holy Spirit in this process. Through prayer, discipleship, and clear expectations, we seek to help each child grow to serve humbly and lead wisely.
