Anyone who is searching for a private school would be well advised to consider this school. They have created a community of people who love kids, love God and live out their lives with character. We currently have four of our six children enrolled and they all love to GO TO SCHOOL. That is not common. This school is not common. From the unique approach to teaching and learning to the unique schedule, I can not say enough about this school. We plan on enrolling our 4 year old next year and pray that she will graduate high school from Solid Rock Community School.

I am a graduate of Solid Rock. Loved my time there. The staff is really nice and helpful, they care about you. I had been to a few schools before I went there and they became "home". I''m now in college but I will always remember my Solid Rock days and friends.

The teachers here were absolutely fantastic. There are plenty of sports and a great, friendly, family-like atmosphere. Any one can participate in athletics at Solid Rock no matter their skill level.
