Head of Lower School


Welcome to Rocky Mount Academy’s Lower School! There is a special spirit in our division where students are busy and engaged and have a warm relationship with their teachers and classmates. The recipe for our success begins with our dedicated faculty who set the bar high with both academics and behavior which feed into our school mission as we prepare for the challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities to be encountered in life and college.

We make it a priority to know each student well and to create classroom environments where every child is acknowledged and feels a safe sense of belonging. Within small classes, students receive the direct instruction and support they need to begin bridging the gap between their academic performance and potential. Our program places an emphasis on developmentally appropriate challenges that nurtures a sense of self-discipline, resilience, and confidence in our learners.
Our LS at RMA builds a supportive community in the classroom giving children the time and opportunity they need to practice important social skills. We promote student independence and ownership allowing children to make good choices. Our academic program is full of enrichment opportunities in fine arts, physical education and in Global Studies.

At RMA, we partner with families who have like goals and want their children to be loved and understood yet challenged and motivated. We integrate character education and responsibility to give back to our community.

I delight in watching our children transform into responsible citizens at RMA where they experience the foundation for all learning. Rocky Mount Academy is a special place to be, and we appreciate your interest in learning more about our school.

The mission of Rocky Mount Academy -- to prepare its students for the challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities that they will encounter in life and in college -- begins in Lower School.

 

The Lower School provides a solid and comprehensive foundation upon which students will build their futures.  A strong phonics-based language arts curriculum, hands-on math and science, and daily social studies instruction are the cornerstones of the Lower School program.

To enhance academic instruction and enrich the students' overall growth and development, enrichment courses are incorporated into their daily schedules. These courses include:  art, music, physical education (4 days per week), world languages and global studies, computer lab/technology, guidance, and library.

In addition, our Lower School students travel off campus for a variety of educational experiences throughout the year, and each year, guest speakers and visiting authors join us to share their work and experiences with the students.

Our experienced staff of 14 teachers and 4 assistants in grades Pre-K through 5 is committed to providing quality instruction to meet the needs of every child in Lower School. For students who need additional support to reach their academic goals, our Learning Skills Program offers students the opportunity for one-on-one or small group tutoring and enrichment. 

In Lower School, our commitment to our families is to provide a rich and thorough educational experience for students that will pave the way for success in meeting the challenges that lie ahead in school and beyond.
