High School at Living Rock Academy
At Living Rock Academy, we combine technology with the rigor of engaging academic classes to prepare and equip our students for their post-graduation endeavors. While LRA is a college prepatory school, we also focus on vocational opportunities and internships for students to discover career options.
Most of our graduating seniors choose to further their education at colleges and universities. To prepare our students for college, each LRA graduate is required to take four years of ELAR, Social Science, Science, Bible, and Math. This requirement allows our LRA graduates to receive a Foundations diploma with at least one Endorsement from the state of Texas or a distinguished level diploma. Starting junior year, LRA offers dual enrollment with St. Philips College to earn course credit after successfully passing the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA).
Our course offerings also include cross-curricular studies and an extended travel program. Both programs allow our students to go beyond their textbooks and support our focus “to see it, touch it, live it, and make education real.” See both our cross-curricular and international studies pages for more information.
In addition to our academic studies, we prepare our 11th and 12th-grade students to actively pursue opportunities for college choices and scholarships. Guidance and instruction for both college planning and career paths are gained through Forum classes and guidance counseling.
At LRA, we also encourage our juniors and seniors to participate in our internship program. Through internships, students gain experience and knowledge in career fields of their interest. These opportunities are valuable tools in planning for the future.
