TO LEARN MORE ABOUT US.
Rocklin Independent Charter Academy (RICA) is an accredited K-12 school that strives to meet the growing needs of students by offering a 3-Tier blended school model that keys into student's individual passions in learning. By catering to these passions, students are best prepared for a lifetime of success in college and their careers. Teachers use a combination of direct-classroom instruction, project-based learning, on-line courses and independent study to build an educational plan to meet the needs of every student.
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Grades K-6 partner with families to provide a unique learning model where students can discover their passions and talents in a flexible and personalized learning environment. Click on the K-6 TAB for detailed information.
MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL: We also offer traditional online courses through a curriculum based program called "OdysseyWare". All rigorous and relevant course work is completed online at home or at school to meet the same requirement as our direct instruction classes.
In addition, some students also attend small direct-instruction classes in math and English as well as science labs. Students meet with teachers in traditional group settings and receive teacher-led instruction, participate in active conversations around texts, and collaborate on extended learning projects.
All student work is monitored by highly qualified credentialed teachers who meet weekly with students to review, correct, proctor and instruct in person. If students find they need more help, we provide tutoring.
The unique design of RICA gives students a voice in their own educational goals. This voice leads to an ownership in personal academic achievement and a more positive learning experience which, in turn, helps them find success in their future college and career choices.
