Working at The Rock Academy Early Education Center has been the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences I have ever had. I really appreciate being in a work environment that is supportive to staff and families, loving to all children and allows Christ to be at the center of everything. There is no other place like this. I am so proud to be a part of such a phenomenal program and to call myself a Warrior!

Delisha Doakes Early Education Center Director

My passion for teacher stems from my passion for learning. I get to be part of a community that is continually investigating new topics in an ever-changing world and always finding new meaningful ways to invest in the lives of our students.

Doug Wylie High School Chemistry, Biology & Photography

From the moment I stepped on Campus, I knew that The Academy would be an amazing work experience. After 26 years in Public Education, I am so blessed to work with a group of people who value Christian Relationships and Discipleship. To pray with my students, to be able to share the Truth of God’s word, to see my students find purpose and to seek His will – these are the reasons The Rock Academy is where I work!
