What do Rockers have in common? Well, for one thing, they’ve all made the extraordinary choice to be here.
And that’s no small thing, actually. It’s a courageous decision that represents a willingness to take risks, and to do things a little differently than most of their peers. Rockers are full participants in their own learning, and that takes an open and willing mind, a driving curiosity, and a lot of creative flexibility. It’s a responsibility our self-directed students take seriously.
Rockers want to do more than ace the test; they want to test their ideas in the world, and tackle real problems in need of innovative solutions.
“A typical Simon’s Rock student? Atypical.”-Jan '13
Our students bring with them a diversity of languages, experiences, backgrounds, and beliefs, as well as interests, skills, and talents. They value being part of the Rocker community where peers and mentors respect and learn from each other’s differences. Our students? They’re Rockers, all the way.
