Located in San Diego, California, the Rock Academy is a private Christian school situated on a beautiful campus offering a rigorous academic program, competitive athletics, and small class sizes.
The school has created a specific International Program which cares about each individual international student. The desire s for each of them to succeed at the school and transition successfully into a four-year American university.
Each student in this program is required to take an English Language support class until the coordinator deems appropriate. Throughout the year, the coordinator provides opportunities for students to partake in activities outside of school, in a fun or educational manner. Activities include, but are not limited to: bowling, ice skating, visiting Old Town and an international food festival, where students can invite an American friend.

Under very limited circumstances, the school will allow students to apply without the assistance of an agency only if the student can prove that he/she will be living with an immediate family member for the entire duration of their study.
