Message from Phil Spears, Executive Director

We are pleased to announce that our facility lease negotiations have been finalized, and we can continue moving forward with the opening of our Rocklin Academy Gateway campus! The location of this new Transitional Kindergarten (T-K) through Grade 8 charter school is 6550 Lonetree Boulevard in Rocklin.

Rocklin Academy Gateway is scheduled to begin serving students in August of 2014. With that date just around the corner, we are pleased to announce that the online admissions process will begin at 8 a.m. on Friday, December 6, 2013. We will hold the first of two parent information nights at 6:30 p.m. on December 17th at Western Sierra. If you cannot make the December 17th meeting, a second meeting will be held on January 22, 2014 at Western Sierra. This is a very exciting time for our organization, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our parent information nights! Western Sierra is located at 660 Menlo Drive in Rocklin.
