K-6 Curriculum
The curriculum at all K-6 elementary campuses is the same. The number of classes offered per grade differs at each location.  Our Gateway campus offers Transitional Kindergarten (TK), and the Kindergarten program all three elementary campuses is an extended-day schedule.
 
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.  Parental involvement is not a requirement for acceptance to or continued enrollment at the Rocklin Academy Family of Schools.  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.
