For Students

A customized, high-quality virtual education benefits a diverse range of students and meets various individual and family needs. Students perform better when they receive personalized attention in a nurturing environment. By working in a comfortable setting and at their own pace, students are positioned to achieve unique academic success.

For Parents

ROCS highly encourages and supports parental involvement. 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 part of this team, you can structure your child’s daily routine, review lessons, and monitor progress at your convenience.

Our Teachers

At ROCS, each student is paired with a licensed, certified teacher. Our teachers focus on providing individualized attention and interactive learning experiences. Although learning takes place outside the traditional classroom, parents and students have full access to their teachers, including opportunities for regular in-person or virtual meetings.
