Big Time School of Rocqué is the 3rd episode of Season One of Big Time Rush. It is premiered on January 18, 2010.


The boys are annoyed when they are told that they have to go to school because of the rules of the entertainers' union. They catch a glimpse of the Palm Woods School, which seems to be fun. However, they have to attend to the "School of Rocque", though, which is located at Rocque Records and is the total opposite to the Palm Woods School. Their mission is now clear; they have to try everything in order to get sent to the Palm Woods School. At first, they chase their teachers off but much to their dismay Kelly and Gustavo always find a new one. Gustavo shows the boys the ASPA (Actors, Singers, and Performers Association) book of 10,000 teachers that he can call. He leaves the boys with the book, where they realize that they have rules every teacher needs to follow, such as hot lunches and outdoor breaks. The boys soon use those rules against Gustavo until he gives up and sends the boys to the Palm Woods School. Much to their dismay, the Palm Woods School isn't as fun as they have dreamed and are sent to detention on their first day.


Mrs. Knight fails in home-schooling Katie and tries to get her a place at the Palm Woods School. Katie has to be part of the "Union", where actors, singers, and performers are able to get in. They soon try out a few auditions but they fail. At an audition for "Suds-O" laundry detergent, they meet a woman and her son, Elliott. He suggests that Katie will not have any chance in getting the job for the commercial and soon Mrs. Knight attacks the woman (Elliott's mother), and Katie attacks Elliott. However, Mrs. Knight appears in the "Suds-O" commercial with Elliott and Katie fighting in the background (This is because it is an example on how children get dirty). Katie is then allowed to attend to the Palm Woods School.
