Parents

ROCS highly encourages and supports parental involvement. Our parents have the freedom to choose when, where and how their child progresses academically. ROCS parents are paired with a state-certified educator to form a learning team. As a part of the team, you have the ability to structure your child’s daily routine, review lessons, and monitor progress at your convenience.

Teachers

At ROCS, each student is paired with a licensed, certified teacher. Our certified teachers focus on individual students and an interactive learning experience. Although learning takes place outside of the traditional classroom, parents and students have full access to their teachers, including the opportunity to meet in person or virtually on a regular-basis.
