Why Our School?
At RHP, we dedicate ourselves to individualized approaches to learning and a commitment to small class sizes. Rather than prioritizing content as the driver of education, we focus on inquiry-based learning and conceptual skill-building that allow students to approach any subject with confidence and curiosity. Our educational philosophy encourages students to become lifelong learners by nurturing their inherent curiosity, creativity, and problem-solving abilities. As a result, our graduates are well-prepared for a wide range of academic and professional pursuits, embodying the true spirit of a well-rounded education.
Rolling Hills Preparatory School
RHP was founded in 1981 as an independent not-for-profit school with the idea that it could prepare young people for success and happiness in college and beyond. A foundational aspect of our approach to college preparatory curriculum is helping students establish goals, implement an individualized learning path, and track progress with the help of faculty advisors and our college counseling department. We view the path to college as a journey that helps students build their skills, starting in middle school until they eventually attend a college or university program that fits their passions and interests.
Individualized Approaches to Education
Every student is different, and our programs constantly assess individualized performance to identify strengths and challenges for every student. Faculty advisors and learning specialists collaborate closely with students and parents to help students reach their full potential by identifying innovative learning opportunities and fostering a solid support system. This comprehensive understanding enables students to excel in their chosen focus areas, creating a tailored educational experience. By maintaining open lines of communication and actively engaging all parties involved, success becomes attainable for every student. Ultimately, the collective efforts of faculty advisors, learning specialists, students, and parents cultivate a nurturing environment to promote academic achievement and personal growth.
Universal Design - For High Achievers and Learning Differences
At first glance, it can be difficult for families to understand how our programs can simultaneously support high-achieving students with college-bound aspirations and various learning differences, such as ADHD and Dyslexia. Our teachers employ the principles of Universal Design for Learning to create an inclusive environment that fosters achievement for all students. This approach allows us to address the diverse needs of our student body while maintaining academic rigor and promoting experiential learning. In doing so, we build a strong foundation for a successful future, regardless of individual challenges or learning styles.
"Sound Character" is a central tenet of our schools' Four Pillars of Education. Our programs are united under shared goals of character education to educate thoughtful global citizens and provide a sense of personal agency that allows them to navigate the world with a sense of purpose and understanding. By instilling core values, we encourage students to foster a sense of responsibility towards themselves, their peers, and their communities. Through this holistic approach to character development, our students are well-prepared to face the challenges of the modern world and contribute positively to society.
