Rockwell Christian School back to school information

ROCKWELL — Since 1976, Rockwell Christian School has been fulfilling its mission by assisting parents in the training, education and spiritual development of their children, recognizing each as a unique creation of God.

Rockwell Christian School exists to give students the opportunity of developing the mind of Christ while becoming educated leaders of tomorrow.

Rockwell Christian School, located at 401 Depot St., will begin the 2015-16 school year with more than 150 new and returning students.

An open house and orientation is scheduled for Aug. 21 at 7 p.m., and classes will begin Aug. 24 at 8 a.m.

Through Bible classes, curricula, chapels, community outreach, spiritual counseling, leadership conferences, retreats and spiritual emphasis weeks, a Biblical world view in all areas of life is strongly emphasized to help develop the mind of Christ in each student.

The student life experience at Rockwell Christian School helps develop the student socially in making friendships and interacting with peers. Developing these skills is necessary to become an effective Christian communicator and effective adult. Through avenues such as the Honor Society, field trips, fellowship activities and special events, combined with spiritual infiltration, students are given the opportunity to demonstrate leadership in their class, youth group, and community.

By receiving a quality education, students are given the opportunity to become the world’s leaders of tomorrow. Students from Rockwell Christian School have consistently scored well above national averages on the Stanford 10 Achievement Test and continue to do so.

Graduates from Rockwell Christian School have pursued degrees in medicine, journalism, law, ministry, education and many other paths of study.

Rockwell Christian School’s highly qualified teachers equip students with excellence in academics, as well as Christian values and Biblical worldview.

The low student-teacher ratio enhances the educational atmosphere. Through a traditional classroom setting, students engage in learning by using technology while building friendships to last a lifetime.

During preschool, routines and procedures, along with a fun learning environment, set the stage for each student’s academic experience.

Throughout elementary school, the foundation is laid, and each student’s focus is set on the basics: reading, writing and arithmetic.

Junior and senior high school prepares students with college prerequisites, allowing each student to feel confident when applying to various universities and choosing which career path to take. Individualized programs for remediation, special education and Advanced Placement courses are available to meet each student’s needs.

Through competitive athletics and motivating coaches, students learn the value of endurance, teamwork and sportsmanship.

Elementary offers intramural sports including basketball and cheerleading.

As a member of the NCCSA Conference and Carolina Christian Conference, Rockwell Christian School offers boys’ basketball and soccer and girls’ volleyball and basketball for students in junior and senior high school. With expansion and growing interest, more sports will be added in the future.

To sharpen skills in the arts, students participate in the NCCSA Fine Arts Competition in areas of music, art and speech as well as various school concerts, plays and musicals.

Through reasonable tuition, Rockwell Christian School extends the opportunity of quality, Christian education to families in the area.
