Guiding Principles

At Solid Rock Preparatory Academy, we aim to support Christian families and the local church by providing a Christian education that preserves and strengthens the family relationship through increased time together. Both the educational approach and the model endorse the pursuit of virtue and wisdom in order to develop life-long learners, Christ followers, and responsible citizens. We currently offer grades Kindergarten through Third Grade with class sizes of no more than 16 students per class to foster individualized instruction and to enhance learning opportunities. Our goal is to add at least one grade per year until we become a Preschool through Twelth Grade School. 

A University Model® School

 A University-Model School® integrates challenging academics, student engagement, and Christ-like character development while affirming the parents’ role as the primary influence in their children’s lives by redirecting time from the school to the family.  The UMS approach employs a university-style schedule adapted to the elementary, junior, and senior high levels, gradually preparing and releasing students towards age-appropriate independence and organization.  Professional teachers, instructing in their areas of expertise, conduct central classroom instruction.

Elementary students attend classes on campus two days per week - Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students spend alternate days at home where parents continue the instruction or monitor student progress.  Teachers provide parents with detailed lesson plans and instructions for days spent at home. Parents need not have teaching experience but must commit the time to actively engage, direct, instruct, and mentor their students. 

The UMS approach and balance of group instruction complemented with individualized reinforcement caters to a wide variety of student needs.
