It offers academic programs for grade 7–12 students, various cross-cultural exchanges, as well as numerous arts and athletics programs. Throughout the course of the past few years, it has developed numerous scholarships and awards presented to students graduating from this school.</p><p>Despite its name, approximately 40% of its 300-student population are typically Mennonite, coming from the modern <a href="/pages/w/138262619532099">Canadian Mennonite church</a>, rather than <a href="/pages/w/139134549447509">Old Order Mennonites</a>. Although the school name refers to "Mennonite", Rockway accepts students from all types of religions. It offers renowned religious studies courses that allow students to explore all areas of faith, religion, and belief.</p><h2>History</h2><p>The school was created by <a href="/pages/w/145810015445829">Swiss Mennonite</a>s living in Waterloo, upset with the increasing military influence on wartime schools in Canada. They raised $50,000 and purchased a farmhouse on Doon Road to convert into their first school building.</p><h2>Exchange Program</h2><p>The school has a strong <a href="/pages/w/110708245620675">exchange program</a> with China, hosting dozens of Chinese students annually, and supporting a number of senior Rockway students who travel to China. There is also an exchange to France and Germany available to students after completing Grade 11. Recently, the Grade 12 class has been offered the chance to go on an exchange to Guatemala. Due to the many exchange programs Rockway offers, there are also many language courses. Rockway is one of the few schools in Waterloo region to offer Mandarin as one of its language courses.</p>
