Service

Do you like helping others, social justice, law enforcement, detective work, fire science, teaching others, or child development? The Service Academy is for you.

 

This Academy has two pathways:

Education

Rockford Public Schools has partnered with Rockford University to recruit teachers and build a workforce from its own student body. The Rockford University Education Pathway begins in middle school and continues in high school with an education pathway. Students then enroll in a college degree program through Rockford University. The hope is to continue the program through teacher certification and employment with RPS 205. Then graduates can continue as RPS 205 teachers in a graduate program through Rockford University.
