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-prep 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 in 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.  

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 in 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. 


Living Rock Academy’s high school has a Monday through Thursday modified block schedule due to COVID-19 restrictions. Friday is a day for Cross-Curricular activities, Community Outreach, and Academic Enrichment.
 

For the 2021-2022 school year, we plan to return to our normal 8-period schedule. Secondary classes will no longer be on a block schedule. Classes, except for high school Trip Class and Outreach, will meet daily, Monday through Friday.
