We at Rockledge Presbyterian School seek for our children a safe, warm and secure environment. We strive toward this by providing a place to build a healthy self image through love, worship, and respect for each other. Our goal, with support of our church, community, and parents, is to meet each child's needs on an individual basis. He is never far from our thought; we will always remember to give thanks to our Lord Jesus for all His children. "Let the children come unto me. " Matthew 19:14
