History

The academy was founded in 2002 under the auspices of The Rock Church (San Diego), an evangelical megachurch founded in 2000 by Miles McPherson. The school opened in September 2002 in space rented from a Baptist church in the Linda Vista neighborhood of San Diego. At its opening the Rock had a student body of 38 students from kindergarten through 6th grade, as well as a preschool. Seventh and eighth grade students were added in 2003.

In 2007 the academy moved to its current home at 2277 Rosecrans Street, adjacent to the Rock Church in Liberty Station, the historic former Naval Training Center San Diego in Point Loma. It then expanded to serve high school students.

Activities

The Academy participates in athletics at the Division 6 (small school) level. In 2015 the Warriors went 8-3 in their division (8-man football) and reached the CIF finals for the San Diego area.

Controversy

In 2010 the Academy and the church were targets of a class action lawsuit by local residents of Liberty Station, claiming that the presence the school and church has harmed their property values.

In 2013 a civil lawsuit was filed alleging that four young girls had been molested by a teacher at the Rock Academy in 2009-10. The teacher was fired in 2010. There was a police investigation of the allegations in 2012, but no criminal charges were filed.
