Just like the programs for younger students, we focus on three main subjects:
- History - includes some geography study
- Science - includes labs
- Language Arts - includes composition and literature
As your teen attends our program with bundled classes, they will develop strong relationships with classmates simply by having the common bond of time together. With our small class sizes, students will naturally have more time for classroom discussions, greater possibilities to collaborate on group projects, as well as aditional opportunities to meet outside of school.
At ROCK Academy, we recognize that not all students do well in large classroom settings, nor do all students learn in a traditional classroom lecture setting with difficult and challenging textbooks to read. At ROCK, we have gone to great lengths to find solid curricula that is written and designed for students who need more hands-on learning experiences and textbooks that don't take a college degree to read. Who says history and science have to be dry and somber to count as a high school credit?! Our smaller classroom sizes also provide the opportunity for tutors to connect more with students as well as the students having more access to the tutors for questions or assistance.
The ROCK High School program follows the same 4-year rotation for History and Science as the younger ages in keeping with our core value of doing school as a family. Families may jump into ROCK during any cycle.

+The purpose of this class is to present a general and broad overview of physics and physical sciences. We will study the history of physics, important people in the field of physics, and hopefully bring to light an understanding of the interesting ways physics affects our lives. Hands-on labwork is also included. This is not an upper-level physics course and will not require upper-level math skills, but it will meet the requirements of a high school credit, assuming the student completes all assignments.
TUITION $725 per year ($700 if registered before June 1st)
For less than $300 per class for the year, your student will receive three classes for 30 weeks. (NOTE: HS students meet an additional 6 weeks longer than the other ROCK students.) Tuition includes all science lab supplies. Parents are responosible for purchasing all other books and curriculum.
Our optional afternoon programs offer class electives that help to round out your high schoolers transcript with classes like Personal Finance, Film Production, Book Club, Fitness, and more. Most classes are equal to .5 - 1.0 credits.
Specific information regarding afternoon class options will be available in late spring.
