The purpose of the Rocky Bayou Christian School ministry is to glorify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by serving as His instrument in declaring and spreading His truth.
We define Christian education as an educational process in which God works through His committed teachers, biblical methods, and truthful curriculum materials to build disciples with the biblical world view, character, and skills necessary to fulfill God's calling and live to His glory.
We recognize that Christian schools have distinctives which not only separate them from secular schools (those which leave the God of Scripture out), but also distinguish them from each other.

I have three children attending Rocky and they love it. It is laying a Godly foundation so they will be able to stand firm in their beliefs and convictions when they enter college. The teachers and staff are wonderful, providing a solid education and a loving environment. Combine all of that with a great sports program and you have RBCS! I am so glad we chose this school.
