Elementary School

Christian Education for Grades K-5

A Firm Foundation

Our elementary students enjoy a positive school experience surrounded by teachers and staff that go above and beyond in their efforts to support them. This student-centered environment creates a safe and loving place for them to grow in their intellect, their character, their faith, and their talents.

Parents value the strong parent-teacher relationship and the clear and consistent forms of communication, allowing them to feel welcomed when they want to be involved, but still connected when they are not able to be present on campus.

At The Rock School, parents, students, and teachers are working together to establish a firm foundation for our youngest learners to build upon in the future.

We help elementary students master their ABC’s.


Students learn to become leaders of their own learning, choosing topics to explore within the unit of inquiry and having a voice in how they work and share that work.


Students learn to welcome God’s providence and influence in their lives and to discover the intersection of faith and learning in every area of their studies.


Students learn to contribute within a community of learners, developing their communication and collaboration skills through real-world projects.

Six Transdisciplinary Themes

Student learning is organized around six transdisciplinary themes each year:

  • Who we are
  • Where we are in place and time
  • How the world works
  • How we express ourselves
  • How we organize ourselves
  • Sharing the planet

Assessment Done Differently

Assessments are not limited to quarterly report cards and high-stakes test scores.

  • Ongoing monitoring of student learning through feedback and feed-forwarding.
  • Student-led conferences to discuss goals and progress.
  • Portfolio of artifacts to demonstrate the progress in learning.
  • Daily and weekly reporting to parents.

Is The Rock School’s Elementary Program right for you?

We believe the best decision is made when both parents visit our campus, meet our leaders, and experience The Rock School first-hand.
