RAFOS Overview

Authorized under the charter school act of 1992, the Rocklin Academy Family of Schools (RAFOS) is a public school and is open to all students, including those from surrounding areas.  As a public charter school, each school is sponsored by a local school district.  Any applicant residing within the attendance boundaries of the school's sponsoring district will receive a preference in the lottery or on the waiting list.  Each school has a separate waiting list, and some grades may not have availability. If applicable, residency will be verified at time of application and again at time of enrollment.

Parent/Guardian Expectations
Parent/guardian participation/interest are widely recognized as critical factors in the educational success of all students.   Volunteers make our programs stronger, and as such, we strongly encourage families to volunteer a minimum of 30 hours per school year; no student will be punished for a family's failure to volunteer.  There are many ways to become involved, including volunteering in a classroom, attending a field trip or participating on a committee.  See Volunteering for information regarding LiveScan and TB requirements.
