Dear RMA Family,
Welcome to middle school at Rocky Mount Academy! The middle school years are a transformative time of immense intellectual, physical, social, and emotional growth. RMA’s middle school program embraces and celebrates this unique developmental period, providing a smooth transition from the shielded environment of lower school to the academic challenges of upper school.
During this transition time, students face many new and exciting challenges as well as various opportunities for growth. Students come to middle school eager to learn, and we purposefully fan that spark into an enduring flame. Our curriculum balances an appropriate foundation of skills and content with integrated projects and student-initiated learning experiences.
Students in grades six through eight grow tremendously as they face new challenges inside and outside of the classroom, and I can assure you that the life of each middle school student is being enhanced at RMA. Because of the guidance of a talented middle school faculty, RMA’s middle school students learn to succeed and thrive while gaining a new level of independence. Teachers are dedicated to continuous innovation and providing authentic opportunities for creative expression.
The daily goal of RMA's middle school is to prepare students for the challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities that they will encounter in life and college. If you are interested in seeing what that looks like, I personally invite you to schedule a visit to our school in the near future. It would be an honor to show you the academic excellence that is seen alive in our classrooms and hallways every day.
