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.

  1. Are the applications for the new school available online or can we fill out an application from one of the other schools? I just want to be sure I am able to submit my boys’ applications at 8 am next Friday. Thanks for your help in advance.

    • Applications for the new school have not been released. They will go online after the MOU and facility agreements have been finalized.
