Application for the new campus to be released soon

Thank you everyone for your interest in applying for the new campus.

At this time we cannot release the application until we have finalized the MOU and facility agreements. We thank you for your patience, and will keep you posted as to when the applications will be made available for download.

Existing applications for Rocklin Academy- Meyers, Rocklin Academy- Turnstone, and Western Sierra will not be accepted for the new campus.


Charter Approved!

It is a pleasure to announce that last night at the Newcastle Elementary School District Board meeting, their board voted unanimously to approve the Rocklin Academy charter petition for our new T-K through 8 charter school!   


The next steps are to develop a Memorandum of Understanding with Newcastle and finalize lease negotiations for a facility.   We anticipate that negotiations will be completed by Wednesday, April 3, 2013.   At that time we will open up our initial application period for Grades T-K through 6 for the Fall 2013 school year.  The initial application period will begin at 8 a.m. on Friday, April 5, 2013 and end at 4 p.m. on Friday, April 19, 2013.  If we receive more applications than we have spots available, a public lottery for each grade level will take place.   If there are any delays, the application period may also be delayed.


We thank all our supporters for their interest in opening a new Rocklin Academy.  We look forward to bringing an excellent education to even more families in Placer County.
