Rocklin Academy Turnstone is a highly successful K-6 Core Knowledge school that presents a high-quality education which challenges and motivates each child to discover, strive for, and achieve her/his full potential. Rocklin Academy features a strong curriculum, outstanding teaching, and ongoing data analysis of student progress. We believe our students can learn at high levels and we work in partnership with parents and the school community to encourage our students to cultivate their own learning successes.

We are a school of choice in the suburban area outside of Sacramento, California, and our mission is devoted to student learning. Rocklin Academy's philosophy is that all students need a standards-based education which is dedicated to the mastery of a broad base of knowledge. The richness of the Core Knowledge Sequence and California Common Core State Standards, combined with research-proven teaching methods, helps motivate and engage our students. This has shown great success in empowering students to excel and be prepared for the next step in their education. Core Knowledge promotes cultural literacy and celebrates diversity which empowers all students to be proud of who they are. Rocklin Academy Turnstone embraces technology as a differentiated learning tool and provides iPads for each student. In addition, our staff is innovative in using technology to monitor student progress and provide immediate feedback which leads to student led goal setting. Our students take ownership of their own learning and are proud to be a Rocklin Academy Eagle.
