How big is the student body?

What is the student to 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 diverse is the student body?

The Rock Academy prides itself on being truly reflective of the community we serve:

  • Ethnically Diverse: Our student population roughly matches that of San Diego.
  • Social-Economically Diverse: Our tuition plans are tailored to each family’s budget, and roughly 1/3 of our families receive needs-based tuition assistance.
  • Academically Diverse: We set the bar high! While rigorous and college preparatory, our program also offers individualized academic support plans for students who are challenged with mild to moderate learning difficulties.

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 production, 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 of artistic opportunities and athletic teams.

Is there a uniform policy?

Yes. Students at the Rock Academy wear a comfortable uniform that consists of shorts, pants, skirts, polo shirts and jackets. Uniforms reduce clothing-related peer pressure, creates uniformity between socioeconomic classes, and tend to cost less than traditional youth clothing.

How much is tuition?

Tuition varies depending on the age or grade of the student. See tuition rates here . Tailored tuition is available for families who need financial assistance. More info here.

Do you offer financial aid?

Yes. 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 that not all families can afford tuition. Our hope is to partner with you to make becoming a part of the Rock community a possibility. We encourage families with financial concerns to apply for our Tailored Tuition program.
