Academics[edit]

AICE Program[edit]

In 2005, Rockledge High School became the first in the school district to offer the Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE).[1] In 2007, Rockledge was designated an International Fellowship Center, a special recognition only available to schools with an AICE program, making it only the 19th in the world and the 5th in the U.S. to gain this title.[2]

Athletics[edit]

In 2009, the estimated income to fund sports at the school was $144,502. That amounted to $312 per athlete.[3]

Football[edit]

In 2013, Rockledge alum and NFL player Laurent Robinson donated 15 Shockbox concussion sensors to his former high school.[4] The Raiders will be the first high school in Florida to use such technology to monitor their players, which will occur throughout the 2013-14 season in collaboration with researchers from the University of South Florida.[5]

Recognition[edit]

The school won the state championship in 3A football in 2001 and 2002.[6]

Rockledge also won the state championship in 4A baseball in 2004.[citation needed]
