The Rocklin Academy Family of Schools’ number one priority is to provide the best learning environment for our students. We know that it is our employees who influence the learning environment. As such, we place the highest value on our employees and strive to create supportive, challenging and innovative schools where they work.
Our schools are very innovative in the approach to student learning and all faculty and staff have the core belief that all students can learn at high levels and it is our jobs to ensure learning is happening. At the elementary level, we utilize the Core Knowledge curriculum. Our Gateway campus is part of the Summit Learning PLP program at the seventh and eighth grade levels. Additionally, our high school program is rigorous with an AP focus that also offers dual enrollment courses with our local community college.
We currently have four campuses covering grades TK – 12. Our first elementary public charter school was opened in 2001. Our middle/high school opened in 2009 and our most recent grammar school with grades TK – 8 opened in 2014. Our schools regularly outperform other schools in our area. We offer a comprehensive/competitive benefits package to our employees and participate in both the CalSTRS and CalPERS programs.

To comply with applicable laws ensuring equal employment opportunities to qualified individuals with a disability, the Academy will make reasonable accommodations for the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability who is an applicant or an employee unless undue hardship would result.
Any applicant or employee who requires an accommodation in order to perform the essential functions of the job should contact the Director of Human Resources and request such an accommodation. The individual with the disability should specify what accommodation he or she needs to perform the job. The Academy then will conduct an investigation to identify the barriers that interfere with the equal opportunity of the applicant or employee to perform his or her job. The Academy will identify possible accommodations, if any, that will help eliminate the limitation. If the accommodation is reasonable and will not impose an undue hardship, the Academy will make the accommodation.
