High School Done Differently
Rock University High School was founded in 2014. We are a tuition free public charter school located on the Blackhawk Technical College Campus. Any high school age student in Wisconsin is welcome to attend, regardless of district of residency. With our engaging and personalized approach, students understand why their learning matters because the materials they are exploring are relevant to their lives and the world around them.
The mission at Rock University High School is to inspire and empower all students to reach their full by providing them a college preparatory learning experience. The students' learning experience includes an emphasis on STEM and the humanities so that students acquire the knowledge, skills and practices to become critical and creative thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, leaders and collaborators.
